IN LOVING MEMORY
God looked around the garden and He found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth and He found your tired face,
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest,
God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough and hills were hard to climb,
so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, “Peace Be Thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone,
for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
We Will Forever Love You………….
On Sunday, January 10, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., a graveside service will be held at the Elrod Baptist Church Cemetery in Rowland. Pastor Gary Chavis will be officiating.
