Broken Chain

A tender heart stopped beating, two loving hands at rest

God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best

A million times we’ll need you, a million tears we’ll have cried

If our love could have saved you, you never would have died

The things we feel most deeply are the hardest things to say,

We, your family, love you in a very special way.

If we could have one lifetime wish, one dream that would come true,

We’d pray to god with all our hearts for yesterday and you.

Our family chain is broken and nothing will be the same,

But as god calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

A very special “Thank you” to all the staff at the Cascade Hospice from Charlie’s whole family. You have made this very difficult time in our lives, much easier to bear.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, Chilliwack Unit, 9136 Young Road, Chilliwack, BC V2P 4R4
