In Loving Memory of


Born July 8, 1936

Died August 25, 2006

God saw you getting tired, and a cure was

not to be.

So he put his arms around you

and whispered “Come to Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you, and

saw you pass away.

Although we loved you dearly

we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove

to us,

He only takes the best.
