I cried the day you passed away, the pain still hurts,
I cried today.
Although I loved you Dearly, I couldn't make you stay.
A Loving Heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
GOD broke my heart to prove to me,
He Only Takes the Very Best.
Jean, We Love You So Much. Until we meet again you will be forever in our Heart.
