We’re sending a dove to Heaven,
With a parcel on its wings,
Be careful when you open it,
It’s full of beautiful things.
Inside are a million kisses,
Wrapped up in a million hugs,
To show how much we miss you,
And to send you all our love.
We hold you close within our hearts,
And there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives,
Until we meet again.
– Love, Barbara, Isobel and families.
