Loving Memories

Your gentle face and patient smile with sadness we recall. You had a kindly word for each and died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and stilled, the heart that loved us well and true, Oh, bitter was the trial to part from one so good as you.

You are not forgotten, loved one. Nor will you ever be; as long as life and memory last, we will remember thee.

We miss you now, our hearts are sore. As time goes by we miss you more. Your loving smile, your gentle face, no one can fill your vacant place.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, June 24, from Rhoades-Wilson Funeral Home with Rev. Jerrold SWINTON officiating. Casketbearers were Ralph LONG, George STILL, Harold LINDEMAN, Larry GILES, Lyndon NICHOLS and Jim EASTON. Interment was in Rose Hill cemetery, Mount Ayr.
