Lovely words

A couple of weeks ago I attended the funeral of a dear old friend. It was a day of tears and laughter, hugs and kisses, and a chance to regroup with old friends.

In the front cover of the order of service was the following poem. I was just reading it again, and the words touched me as much as they did that morning two weeks ago.
I had to share.

Life can be so busy
That the days just seem to fly
And time without those
We care about
Can sometimes pass us by
But in the midst of busy hours
It's always nice to find
That thoughts of favourite people
Very often come to mind
Happy thoughts that make us smile
And brighten up the day 
Warmed by special memories
That are in our hearts to stay
And even though out schedules
May keep us on the go
We qwant to take the time
To let these people know
We're glad for everything we've shared
And want to keep in touch
For people in our hearts and thoughts
Will always mean so much

Although Kevin hasn't been a close part of my life for some years, he was a big part of my life at one time, and I am very sorry that he is no longer with us.

Just as others do, I love you Uncle Kevvy. Rest now.
