A loved one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place we find so vacant,
That never can be filled.

His merry smile we miss,
His footsteps no more we hear;
Upon his brow a kiss
Was to all of (us) so dear.

We always will remember
His sweet and loving ways;
His ever cheerful laughter
Throughout these dreary days.

But God called him away,
He knowing it was best,
And now our dearly loved one
Is lying in sweet rest.

Card of Thanks
We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the dear friends and neighbors who assisted us during our sad bereavement.

Joseph and Earl Laughery,
Mrs. Juliet Johnson,
Mr. and Mrs. Bert Robert and children
