" I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them that love His appearing."

A precious one from us has gone, , A voice we love is stilled,
A place is vacant in our hearts, Which never can be filled.
And after a lonely heartache, And many a silent tear,
Always a beautiful memory, Of the one we loved so dear.

God looked around His garden and found an empty place, Then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. G od 's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never get well on this earth again.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
The family of William Henry Dixon, Jr., expresses its most sincere and heartfelt apprecia' tion for the many acts of kindness and support shown to us during his many years of illness and this period of bereavement. We pray that God will bless each of you. Special thanks to caring medical professionals at the Medical College of Georgia, the Veterans Administration Hospital and Anna Maria Rehab & Nursing Center for their help to our family. ~ The Family
