  6. A Loving Friend In Heaven

    As the sun sets upon this life
    And your body is laid to rest
    I know you’ll be up in Heaven
    Because God only takes the best
    I know you’re watching over me
    And it takes away the pain
    I will carry you in my heart
    Until we meet again
    My world is a little darker
    Now that we’re apart
    But the memories are shining brightly
    Within this broken heart
    You touched the lives of those you loved
    And we wanted you to stay
    But you were needed up in Heaven
    And God whispered “come this way”
    I know whenever I’m lonely
    And this smile becomes a frown
    I’ll look up to the sky above
    And they’ll be and Angel looking down

    We all miss you dearly Erica. Rest in Heaven
