Kelsi Jordan Miller
We little knew that morning God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone,
For a part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories; your love is still our guide.
And though we can not see you, you are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
