‘Though words may seem so little, I hope, in some small way,
That what I say may ease the pain of the loss you feel today.
Hold fast to all the memories that you cherish from the past:
The blessings and the laughter, and the sorrows along life’s path.
For these are precious treasures— The GOLD of your yesterdays.
They are memories that only the two of you shared.
Keep them safely stored away. The special moments in your life,
That you and your loved one shared are ever locked within your heart.
And forever, they’ll be there.
