Some would say, I've lost a friend,
And yet, I tell you, true ...
He'll be with me ever,
In all that I may do ...

And as I live, I'll share the things,
So you can know him, too ...
Some would say, I've lost a friend,
I'd say, that isn't true.

With Love and Prayers for Lisa, and their family,

Robert and Kookie
