Peace be thine, God knew that you were suffering, that the hills were hard to climb, so he gently closed your eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine." In tears we watched you sinking, we watched you fade away. Our heats were nearly broken, you fought so hard to stay, it broke our hearts to see you go, but you did not go alone, for a part of us went with you the day God called you home.

Graveside services will be held Thursday, July 9, 1998, at 11 a.m. at Memorial Estates Mortuary and Cemetery, 6500 South Redwood Road, where friends may call Wednesday, 6 to 8 p.m. and Thursday, one hour prior to services.
