" Life is t'temal". the Good Lord said. So do not think of you r lured one as dead.
For death is only a stepping ston e To a beautiful life we hal'e never known, A place \\'here God promised man he 1\'(JU/d be
t 'ternally happy and safe and free, A wonder.f~d land Hhere we li ve ane11' When our journey on earth is over and through.
So trust God and doubt Him neJ!er for a/l \VhO love him five forever. And while we cannot understand
Just let the saviour take your hand. For when D eath 's Angel comes tu call " God is so great and we're so small". ..
And there is nothing yo u need fear For Faith in God makes all things clear.
Christine Wiggin s - Daughter
His soul shall dwell at ease. .. Psalms 25:13
