*I always enjoyed spending time with Uncle George. He always had a twinkle in his eye when you talked with him. Aunt Libby will definitely miss you being with her for 70 years. I love and will miss you.

**************IN MEMORY**************

"What mean you by this weeping
To break my very heart?
We both are in Christ's keeping,
And therefore cannot part.
You there, I here, though parted
We still at heart are one;
I only just in sunshine,
The shadow scarcely gone.
What though the clouds surround you,
You can the brightness see,
'Tis only a little way
That leads from you to me.
I was so very weary,
Surely you would not mourn,
That I a little sooner
Should lay my burden down.
Then weep not, weep not, Darling,
God wipes away all tears;
'Tis only a little way
Though you may call it years."
