In Memory of Conner
The sun shined brightly that Sept. day
No one realized you would be taken away.
Your smile, your laugh, your goofiness
is something all will dearly miss.
With your thoughtful heart and caring soul
You touch more lives than you will ever know.
Here we gather because there is nothing else
we can do
Except lean on one another and remember you.
Our tears, they fall onto the ground
In heaven another angel was found.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the family.
