My name is Ron Tranmer and I wrote "The Broken Chain" some years ago at the passing of a young woman in our family. Copies were passed out at her funeral.
I'm happy that it is bringing peace and happiness to many, as it did and has our family. I'm a bit disappointed that my name as the author is not included.
I shared it on a web site some time ago, and gave permission for it to be copied and used, but I feel I should have credit for it's writing.
I realize there are probably many waco's out there who claim authorship for stories, poems, and books. I am not one of them.
A copy of the full poem is below.
If you'd like to talk to me about it you can e-mail or call me at:

We little knew the day 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 loose you
But in God we put all trust.
In times as difficult as this
Faith is such a must.
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.
