A Message From Your Wife

The times that meant the most to me were the moments we spent together...talking, laughing, dreaming, just enjoying the day and each other...And recalling those times brings so many warm feelings...feelings of closeness, of caring, of love.

 

His Loving Wife!


A Prayer for Dad

Lord, Shepherd my dad today

In green pastures let him lay

To still waters guide his way

Restoreth his soul, I pray

 

Lead him through the paths of right

Through the valley give him light

When he's afraid ease his fright

With thy rod and staff lend might

 

Prepare a table of spoil

Annointest his head with oil

Give to him a cup that's royal

Let goodness follow his toil

 

And Thy mercy cease never

May he dwell in Thy house forever

This I ask in Jesus' Name, Amen

 

Your Loving Kids!
