IN MEMORY OF WILLIAM BRINKLEY
I cannot think of him as dead.
Who walks with me no more.
Along the path of life I tread,
He walks on the golden shore.
It is not death to die
To leave this weary road
And midst the brotherhood on high
To be at home with God
Lovingly missed by his Wife, Children & Grandchildren
