    Recently your life has been forever changed.

    Your heart has been broken, never to be made whole.


    And there is nothing that anyone can do for you,

    except offer our heartfelt sympathy and unconditional love -

    gross inadequacies.


    Not a day will go by that you won't carry him in your heart.


    But find peace in knowing

    that although the flame of his life has been extinguished

    far before its time,

    the ember of his memory can never be dimmed.
