I sang this at my 30 year old step-daughter's funeral, just about managing to do so without breaking down ...

SONG FOR VALERIE

Time passes over more peacefully each day,
Recalling good times to drive sorrows away.

Our Valerie's arising so high in the sky,
With her flaming red hair and her sparkling eye.

She was not too rich and she was not too poor,
But she spread happiness to us and to thousands or more.
