IN LOVING MEMORY
Gone, gone forever from our sight,
Gone to your heavenly home so bright.
We will miss you so very much,
Your smile, your laughter, your loving touch.
Some day we hope to meet again,
Where there's no sorrow, grief or pain.
So rest upon your Savior's breast,
Where there is perfect peace and rest.
Your loving daughter,
Emelda and Children
