Whether a family is bound together
or scattered far apart,
Loved ones from the past and present
are always in our heart.
Legacies of love and pride are passed down
through the years,
Journals kept of triumphs, tragedies and tears.
Tales of great joy, sacrifice and sorrow can be found,
Character traits, personalities and likenesses abound.
Families give us history, roots tied to our past
And a heritage that's honored is one that's sure to last.
