In memory of Laura
Marie Cockson
July 17, 1976, to March
14, 1998
A million times we’ve
needed you;
A million times we’ve
Our hearts are broken
and torn apart;
Our minds are'weary
from asking, “Why?”
Sometimes we wonder
if you really knew
How extra-special you
truly were.
Your big blue eyes and
shining smile;
A life without will be
hard to endure.
A million times we’ve
missed you;
A million times we’ve
Birthdays, holidays,
and “family times”;
Such sad reminders that
you have died.
We’d give the world and
even more
To be with you in the
same old way.
To hear your voice and
see your face;
We can only imagine
such a day!
A million times we’ve
grieved for you;'
A million times we’ve
No marriage, children,
future here
’Cause with you all this
We hope you see us
and always know
How much we love and
think of you.
You were our pride and
joy and future here,
Daughter, sister, and
friend so true.
A million times we’ve
prayed for you;
A million times we’ve
’Cause your heart of
gold stopped beating
And with God you now
We ll love you forever,
-Dad, Mom, Steue,
Sarah and Erin
