9-11-1968 TO 2-06-2011

It seems like yesterday that God called you home. It was his will, but in our hearts, we love you still.

Your memory is as dear today as in the hour you passed away.

We often think of you when we are all alone.

For memory is the only friend that grief can call its own.

We love you, Bige and Larry, Janet Rose Fetch, Gary Hensley
