Did you know that God above sent you down for me to love?
He sent you down for all the rest; because he knew I’d love you best.
I had a heart and it was true; because it went from me to you.
So keep it true as I have done, for you have two, and I have none.
If I get to heaven and you’re not there, I’ll cease to read your name upon the golden stairs.
So I’ll gather up my little things, and give the angels back their wings.
Just to prove my love is true, I’d even go to hell for you.
A celebration of life will be held at the VFW, 4123 10th Ave. S., Great Falls starting at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 19, 2017.
