May 10, 1925 – April 22, 2020
Another branch has fallen from our family tree,
Be not sad,
for it was meant to be.
Jesus whispered come join me here,
And be with your loved ones,
He lived his life to provide and serve,
His faith was strong,
His love and memories are for us to preserve.
Rest in Peace
Our Dear Father
