"I pray You'll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don't know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way

Lead us to a place
Guide us with Your grace
To a place where we'll be safe

I pray we'll find Your light
And hold it in our hearts
When stars go out each night
Remind us where You are
Let this be our prayer
When shadows fill our day

Oh Lord, lead us to a place, oh my
Guide us with Your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

A world where pain and sorrow will be ended
And every heart that's broken will be mended
And we'll remember we are all God's children
Reaching out to touch you, reaching to the sky

We ask that life be kind
And watch us from above
We hope each soul will find
Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer
Just like every child
Needs to find a place
Guide us with Your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

Needs to find a place
Guide us with Your grace
Give us faith so we'll be safe

"Thinking of you often.  As the holidays approach I will remember how we were always excited to celebrate.  I remember Our First Christmas together.  I just put out the ornament that we have from that Christmas. I miss you the same every day.  It never changes.  I love you, Bobby.  You are part of my soul.  You are never far from me.  One day I will once again feel your hand holding mine, look up at you and lay my head on your shoulder.  Until then I will forever remember and miss you."

This tribute was added by Sharon Obrien on 18th May 2014

"You must be dancing and singing with joy to see that your life long wish is coming true....your children, lost to you for so long, are finding one another.  I hate to say I told you so....but I did.  I know you can't be physically here to experience it but I know that spiritually you know it's been happening.  You just have to be patient.  All things come about in their appropriate time.  Still missing you and ALWAYS LOVING YOU."

This tribute was added by Sharon Obrien on 16th May 2014

"I try NOT to remember dates like your birthday, the date that you passed away, etc.  Tara always reminds me, though.  Like you, she is good with numbers and can't forget dates even if she wants to.  Everyday without you hurts.  I miss you more each day.  You don't get over loss.  You just get through it.  You never forget the love of your life.  You can never be replaced in my heart. I gave you my heart on our first date.  I KNEW you were different, special and already belonged to me.  Just as I already belonged to you.  Forever and Ever Amen"
