Family Expression of Gratitude

Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so we saw it there. Perhaps you prayed a sincere prayer or came to pay a call. Perhaps you sang a cheerful song, if so we heard it all. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say. Perhaps you prepared a tasty dish or maybe furnished a car. Perhaps you rendered a service unseen, near at hand or from afar. Whatever you did to console our hearts, by word or deed or touch. Whatever was the kindly part, we thank you oh so very much. We just want to say thank you .
