Jarvis Favorite Daily Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die, before I wake.
I pray the Lord my soul to take.


Families share so many things together but it's the special things that make a family strong. And among the most special is the love of a dear grandfather... like you. You amused us with your humor. We loved you very much. We will miss you dearly. May the Lord keep you in his care. We love you Jarvis!
