Condolence & Memory Journal


Angela My Sweetheart Always I Love and Miss You so Much

God Looked Around His Garden
and found an empty place.

He then looked down upon the
earth and saw 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 saw the road was getting rough,
and the 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.

I will always Love and Miss You Forever
my "Little Jake"
Love Your Bob
