To Dad and Mom

I faced the stone with downcast mien;
Before the words: Beloved husband
And father, John. May he rest with
The peace so worthy of his gentle heart.

And joined with his soul in glory earned,
Is the weary soul of his Beloved Wife---
Mother of four. May Gertrude rest
with peace as John. Amen.

We miss them with our saddened
Souls, and repent not being
With them in their final days of

This strange Earth of
Contradictory feelings and beliefs
Witnessed their lifelong hard work.
Success comes in many guises,
Not only wealth of dollars, but
Wealth of spirit. They had it.

May they rest in peace.
