My heart is so sad as I go to the church
To say a final earthly good bye
To a wonderful friend
Whose been so precious to both Larry and
Such beauty from within,
and so beautiful to see
A woman with a heart as big as the sky
There's a vacant place in our hearts that
will always be
I'll say so long for a little while but
never will I say good bye.
There was not enough
time, God took you so young
Now in that heavenly choir you sing
One day I'll join you and together
We'll raise our voices to our King.
So Lon, wait for
us, At the gates of pearl.
One day you'll see us walk through.
I want to walk around heaven and see all
With Jesus, and with you.
So it's just so long,
from this earthly realm
But good bye from the suffering and pain.
We'll meet again in that heavenly home
Where we'll never have to part again.
