Local, Same Day
In Memory of Kenny Rubin
We never knew 20 years ago the sorrow the day would bring.
The bitter grief, the shock severe to lose a loved one so dear.
We still ache with sadness and grief and secret tears still flow.
The day was such a nightmare, no one will ever know.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
For a- part of us went with you that day G-d took you home.
Your loving family,
Mom & Dad, Karen & Jerry, Larry & Nori and your nieces & nephews.
