To have yet to feel the touch that's as gentle as your hand The closeness of our family one could never understand. As each of our lives continue to change, Reflections of your love in each of us remains You have pointed our the path and led us along the way; The wisdom you have planted; we each still hold today You sheltered use through childhood and saw us through today, Taught us of the Lord above, about faith and how to pray One day we'll all be in heaven dancing on the throne, Praising God for giving us a FAMILY like we've never known. No matter where our lives may go we will trust the Lord above and trough it all always thank him for our grandparents love!!
