My Prayer
My Prayer is that you find relief to ease the pain of all your grief
For he’s not gone he’s just away, now he lives in your heart

and who’s to say he is not there with you in every way
for the love of a husband, father, and brother will never die

you will think of him often and softly sigh
Watching and caring as all loved ones do

and letting you know he will always love you
Written by William’s mom, Mrs. Dorothy Trotter
