Dec. 18, 1944-April 23, 2009

"There's an open gate at the end of the road

Through which each must go alone;

And there is a light we cannot see

Our Father claims His own

Beyond this gate our loved one finds

Happiness and rest;

And there is comfort in the thought

That a loving God knows best."
