Mrs. Lash was always ready to lend a helping hand to everyone. She was a devoted wife, a loving conscientious mother, a good neighbor and friend.
We loved her yes, we loved her
But Jesus loved her more,
And he sweetly called her
To yonder shining shore.
The golden gates were opened wide
A gentle voice said, "Come"
A nd with farewell unspoken
She calmly entered Home.
