Melody Crystal Valenzuela


The blow was great, the shock severe

We little thought the end was near.

And only those who have lost can tell

The pain of parting without farewell.


It broke our hearts to lose you

But you did not go alone.

A part of us went with you

The day God called you home.


Nothing can ever take away

The love a heart holds dear.

Fond memories linger every day

Remembrance keeps you near. 


In loving memory of Melody Crystal Valenzuela.
