In Memory of Carrie O'Toole
By Alta Greenwood
He called for his child last Sunday night,
About her head he cast a silver light,
Her troubles are over,her fears are gone,
She'll be happy in heaven always singing a song,
There were many who loved her and mourned at leave.
But why should anyone have to grieve.
Because they all have to go at a certain time,
And that's when our God calls.
