When we leave this world of changes,
When we leave this world of care,
We shall find our missing loved ones
In our Father's mansion fair.
Call not back the dear departed
Anchored safe where storms are o'er;
On the border land we left them
Soon to meet and part no more.
Card of Thanks from his children:
Mr. and Mrs. Robert HARRIS
Mr. and Mrs. Earl VINEYARD
George CALLAIS and wife
Joseph CALLAIS and wife
