Poem based on "Together Again" by Unknown
A reunion occurred in Heaven this week
And what a reunion it must have been!
And we are certain Dad is still holding Kennady
We are confident they are also looking over us
And though we'll miss them terribly
We can still feel their love surround us
For we know this isn't the only reunion
