Someone Is Missing
Let this be a loving reminder
That someone is missing today
Someone our hearts still hold on to
As we travel along life's way.
Someone who made life so special,
For all those who gather here
Someone who won't be forgotten
But cherished from year to year.
And now as we pause to remember
Let us all fondly recall
How dearly each of us loved him
And oh, how he loved us all.
