A memorial prayer for our dear classmate, Kaytlan Morrell, whose vibrant and
kind hearted spirit will forever stay in our hearts.


Another Leaf Has Fallen
                           Another leaf has fallen,
                           another soul has gone.
                      But still we have God's promises,
                            in every robin's song.
                          For she is in His heaven,
                           and though He takes away,
                        He always leaves to mortals,
                           the bright sun's kindly ray.
                       He leaves the fragrant blossoms,
                             and lovely forest, green.
                       And gives us new found comfort,
                            when we on Him will lean.
