KEY, Kim Marie. 2-2-1969 – 20-3-2014 Five years ago today the world lost the most beautiful loving soul.
What I know
I know you soar with angels now and your heart has wings.
I know you’re watching over me whatever this world brings.
I know you were a gift from God and that you’re safe above.
I know I will see you again and once more feel your love.
I know you live in Heaven now and that I must go on.
I know my heart will ache for you until my time is done.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die!!!
Loved and missed always
JK and Laurie Cat XXX
