Mrs Young you will be so greatly missed. You were a very special person to me as I grew up. You were a wonderful roll model. I will always cherish the memories I have of you during my childhood. Life gets in the way as we grow up, so I did not see you as often as I would have like. Rob and I will miss you.

Love forever,
Connie and Rob LaPorte

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see...
If the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today...
While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you...
And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me, too.
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand...
That Jesus came and called my name and took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready in heaven far above...
And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart...
For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
