Richard Netherland Cook


Dear Mom and Dad


Our hearts are sad and empty
Since you went away
The sadness stays within us
With every passing day.

We do not know why golden hearts
So soon were called to rest;
Did God break our hearts to prove to us
He only wants the best.

We know that heaven holds you,
And angels you are now
God must have needed you
More than us somehow.

We think of you as we did before
The years have not erased
The images in our hearts and minds
Of each sweet and loving face.

We shall always remember
The days when you were here!
In our hearts are memories
So precious and so dear.

In our hearts there is a place
No one else can ever fill;
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still.

Someday we hope to join you
On heaven's faraway shore
Where no goodby tears are needed,
And parting is no more.
