We think of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.

We have our memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is out (sic) keepsake, with which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our heart.
Sadly missed by Clarice, Elizabeth, Charles, Susan, Todd Lee, and Samantha
