Gone is a father loved by all; his soul is now at rest. He'll sleep in peace- his work is done. A fathers work- the best. He'll know the joy of perfect rest in heaven up above, where he may dwell contentedly protected by God's love. Our hearts may grieve that he must lie beneath the sacred sod. And yet we know he lives in peace within the house of God. We love you Dad & you will be with us in our hearts & spirit forever!
