It would be the greatest ever told
Of a kind and loving father
Who had a heart of gold.

This individual will forever be tied together in the circle of life. Our Loved One's life mattered and continues to matter. Their acts of goodness and courage will never be forgotten. A memorial is a way to remember a loved one forever.
