Williams, who passed away August 20, 1989. I hold you in my dreams at night I call you In the dawn; And yet I have to tell myself That you are really gone. That you are gone beyond recall Forever and a day; And there is nothing I can say. You were so wonderful to me, So gentle, sweet and kind; It seemed that I was always in Your heart and in your mind. No. there is nothing I can say Except a loving prayer;, That God will bless you, dearest one, And keep you In his care. And in my silent sorrow There is nothing I can do Except live a better life In Memory of you.
