Book 3: Cecilia My Love

 Foreword: OBITUARY

 

In the world of long ago and ever after, we are reborn
In every morning dew, in every shaft of sunlight,
In every evening breeze and every peal of chapel bells,
In the voices and faces of little ones,
Our children and our children’s children —
In the never ending cycle of life ever renewed,
We shall live again.

With fondest memories of love,
and the deepest sense of loss,
we mourn the passing

of
