A friend was lost,

Many hearts feel sad,

So sudden came the pain.

A soul adrift,

Free at last,

To be at peace on another plane.

Loving memories sustain

Those left behind,

To help all dry shed tears.

He left his mark

On all who loved,

For them, he's always near.

For all he was,

And all he gave,

In our hearts, he'll always be.

Now soaring high

Amongst the stars,

Before the grace of God goes he.
