Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same
We have to hide our heartache
When someone speaks your name
Sad are the hearts that love you
Silent are the tears that fall
Living here without you
Is the hardest part of all
You did so many things for us
Your heart was kind and true
And when we needed someone
We could always count on you
You are now free from pain
And in a better place
We know that you and Rick
Have finally met again
The special years will not return
When we are all together
But with the love in our hearts
You walk with us forever...
