Plaque captures the essence of Memorial Day
ALMA, Colo. – An unidentified plaque at the base of a Bristlecone pine tree caught the eye of FOX31 Denver viewer Haji Mahmood while he was photographing Windy Ridge near Alma.
The inscription on the plaque is a fitting tribute for Memorial Day.
The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that God was going
to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly. In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you. The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories; your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
