Family Acknowledgment
When it seemed our loss was too great,
We looked up and our friends were there,
With flowers and words, written and spoken,
With faces smiling and hearts open.
You comforted us, you shared our grief,
God will bless and keep you, granting all relief.
Mere words cannot express our deep sense of gratitude,
but they are the best that we have to offer.

THANK YOU!
The Prosser Family
