Online condolences may be directed to: www.crowellsfuneralhome.ca When tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand... That Jesus came and called my name And took me by the hand, And said my place was ready In heaven far above... And that I'd have to leave behind All those I dearly love. So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart... For every time you think of me. I'm right here in your heart.
