In Loving Memory of
Misty Jo Holder
3/6/62 - 11/12/82
Today recalls sad memories of a loved one laid to
rest, those who still remember you are the ones
who loved you best. You are not forgotten, on
earth you are no more, in memory you are with
us as you always were before. Days of sadness still
haunt us, hidden tears still flow, we still don’t
understand why we had to let you go.
Mom - Connie, Sister - Debbie,
Brother - Chris, Special Cousin - Lori
and all who loved her

The moment that you left me,
My heart split in two.
One side filled with memories,
The other side died with you.
I often lay awake at night
When the world is fast asleep,
And take a walk down memory lane
With tears upon my cheek.
Remembering you is easy,
I do it everyday:
But missing you is a heartache
That never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart
And there you will remain.
You see life has gone on without you,
But will never be the same.
