God Knows Best
Our Father knows what's best for us, So why should we complain
We always want the Sunshine, but He knows there must be rain
We love the sound of laughter and the merriment of cheer, But our hearts would lose their tenderness If we never shed a tear.
Our Father tests us often, with suffering and sorrow He tests us not to punish us, but to help us meet Tomorrow.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
May we take this opportunity to thank you for coming to help us bear our grief At this most difficult period for us, it is most gratitying to know that we have friends who are concerned and who care. Your visits, calls, cards, food, thoughts, prayers and other deeds ofkindness have all helped us to bear our great loss.
GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU THE FAMILY
