Our world was made much better because you passed this way;
Always giving encouragement, and a smile to brighten the day.
We hold in loving memory many treasured days of old;
Worth far more to us than their weight in gold.
Although you have left us, we will always have you near;
In our storehouse of memories that we hold so dear.
Lovingly Submitted
The Family
