A nephew's eyes have gone forever
His smile, his laugh, his face
Where once he stood before us
A lone picture takes his place
Gone too soon, a fine young man
From here your place of birth
I can't believe that this is real
That you no longer walk this earth
Reality is I know it's true
But still i can't believe
A fine young man with so much life
Really had to leave.
We loved you from your time of birth
We watched you grow and learn
My nephew we shall meet again
When it's our time, to return.
Forever remembered and always missed
Uncle Bob and Aunt Joyce
