"Thank You for the Valleys"
Life can't be all bridges without any streams.
Life can't be all victories without any dreams.
Life's not like a dungeon without an open door.
Thank You for the valleys I walked thru before.

Life can't be all sunshine or the flowers would die.
Rivers would be deserts all barren and dry.
Life can't be all blessing or there'd be no need to pray.
Thank You for the valley I walked thru today.

Life can't be all rainbows without any rain.
Life can't be all peaceful without any pain.
Life can't be all joyfilled or there'd be no way to grow.
Thank You for the valleys I've got yet to go.

Life is not a pathway all winding and steep.
Plunging into canyons, so rugged and deep.
Life's not like a tempest without an anchor hold.
Thank You for Your Valleys that try us like gold.

Thank You for every hill I climbed;
For every time that the sun doesn't shine.
Thank You for every loney night I prayed
Till I knew that things would be alright.
Thank You for the Valleys I walked thru today.

Hi Shelly, Please let your husband know that his great grandfather John Pogue's gravestone has been found and the photo has been added to his memorial. It is a beautiful marble stone with the inscription "At Rest". John Pogue's memorial number is #100149002.
Always, Catherine

RE: William A. Miller

Would you like us to link Alice to William as his second wife? It would be no problem to do so.

RE: William A. Miller

Sorry we took so long to answer. We have been on vacation. We really don't know a lot on the William A. Miller that we created the memorial for. We were doing some other photos in the Salem Cemetery and since we have the last name of Miller, we took photos of his and Ethel's headstone. We searched for them on findagrave and found that they were not listed so made memorials for them both. I did a little research to find Ethel's maiden name and found their marriage record. We never ran across anything that listed a second wife for him. Sorry we couldn't help you out.
