Kaitlin and I are so sorry for your loss, She loved Ralphy from the moment she laid eyes on him, as well as you kids. I just can;t believe I was just holding him less than a week ago and now this. May God bring you peace and understanding as only he can, may He send angels around you and Charles and that you feel His love. Know that Ralphy is rejoicing with the angels and God almighty, Love in Christ, Gail and Kaitlin Hamilton.

This was a life that had hardly begun
No time to find your place in the Sun
No time to do all you could have done
But we loved you enough for a lifetime

No time to enjoy the world and it's wealth
No time to take life down off the shelf
No time to sing the songs of yourself
Though you had enough love for a lifetime

Those who live long endure sadness and tears
But you'll never suffer the sorrowing years
No betrayal, no anger, no hatred, no fears
Just love - Only love - In your lifetime.
