Lord light 40 beautiful candles,

And sing happy birthday for me.

His 11th birthday in heaven,

And I wonder what his wish will be.

Tell him that I love him and miss him,

And I can’t wait to see his smile.

Place a kiss upon his cheek,

And hold him for a while.

Happy 40th birthday, Chris!

Love, your family
