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...
