From: Frances & Stan Harder
Relation: friend

Life’s journey knows both hill and plain
For each this road must end
And gift of life is only paid
If someone calls us “friend”

There are the years that come and go
Where no one counts the cost
For seeds of kindness gently sown
Are never counted lost

When time has reaped its final toll
And life has passed us by
Its friends who touched our deepest soul
Who made life all worthwhile

Many fond memories Jack – Rest in Peace
