Dear Sister-in-law Kath
You passed away, 19 July 2018
Eighty-six years of bliss
Footprints in the sand of time
The joy you gave every day,
life was like music with you around.
Your sweet soul is now in heaven
Death is a brief separation
The sun will shine again
When we meet again someday
Dancing high in the heavens.
