  • To Papa Nova,

    Although we can not hear your voice or see your smiling face,
    we know deep down in our hearts that you have not left us.
    Instead everyday you surround us with the singing of the birds,
    the rising of the sun and the falling of the night.

    We will remember you.

    From Arlene, Xander, Isaiah and Ken
