Memorials are directed to the Church or Donors Choice.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is still;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in his wisdom has recalled
The boon His love had given;
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in heaven.
JESUS! MARY! JOSEPH!
We have loved them in life;
Let us not forget them after death.
