Like a candle so bright

You always shone your light

A forever smile on your face

All concerns you would embrace

Never too busy to listen

Your eyes would always glisten

Thinking of a plan to assist

Was a challenge you could not resist

A person full of life

No matter if there was strife

Your personality so warm

E'en in the midst of a storm

We could all count on you

Of you, there are only a few

Someone who never grew tired

Of helping and we were inspired

By your quality to never give up or give in

Before you would even begin

Never thought that you would leave

So soon as it's with grief

And sadness in everyone's heart

To accept that you had to depart

In our hearts you will remain

The thought of you might bring pain

But in God's will we must rest

For He's taken you to a place that's best

On earth your light is no more

You're dwelling on a higher shore

Our God is now holding your hand

As He's taking you through the Promised Land
