Lovingly Submitted by THE FAMILY

Remembrance is a golden chain, death tries to break, but all in vain.
To have, to love, and then to part, is the greatest sorrow of the heart.

The years may wipe out many things, but this they wipe out never,
The memories of the times we shared when we were all together.
