Each Life That Touches Ours For Good

I know I've posted a whole lot about you, Alexis.
But, you mean more to me than words can even express.

At your funeral, we sang this song.

Each life that touches ours for good
Reflects thine own great mercy, Lord;
Thou sendest blessings from above
Thru words and deeds of those who love.

What greater gift dost thou bestow,
What greater goodness can we know
Than Christlike friends, whose gentle ways
Strengthen our faith, enrich our days.

When such a friend from us departs,
We hold forever in our hearts
A sweet and hallowed memory,
Bringing us nearer, Lord, to thee.

For worthy friends whose lives proclaim
Devotion to the Savior’s name,
Who bless our days with peace and love,
We praise thy goodness, Lord, above.

I love you, Alexis.
And this amazing drawing captures how Christlike you are.

I know where you are
And I will try my very best and more to make sure that I can be with you again.

I've been thinking about that song all day too. I lost it during that 3rd verse. I looked at it all during sacrament and cried today. Thanks for posting it.
Drive safe.
See you on Tuesday! YAY!!!

I know. I couldn't sing this song hardly at all. I probably got out two words.
