    Because You Loved Her So

    Your heart renders tears that flood within,
    Though we know not that they flow,
    The millions of memories sear your heart,
    Because you loved her so.

    Time heals all pain, you hear us say,
    As on through life you go,
    The road alone, is harder now,
    Because you loved her so.

    Though sky is blue and sun is gay
    Dim clouds are all that show.
    Your world is grey with sorrow now,
    Because you loved her so.

    Look up, look up, she is smilling now!
    She’s with her Lord, you know,
    She’s happy ’cause she’s well once more –
    Because you loved her so.

    Dear Grossglass Family – I was sorry to hear of Janet’s passing. She was a wonderful and faithful friend of over 50 years and I will miss her. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you in this sad time. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the memorial service as I am leaving for Florida on Thursday to spend time with my brother who is living with lung cancer. Peace to all of you. Doris Cozzie
