There is so little we can say.
So little we can do.
When God has called a loved one home.
Who means so much to you.

When smiling eyes are closed in sleep.
According to God's WILL.
And that dear voice you loved to hear.
Has suddenly grown still.

But there are those who think of you.
And those who always care.
And those who stop and say a prayer.
About the burden you must bear.

And so this gentle message is.
Sincerely Meant to be.
A prayerful thought of fond regard.
And heart-felt sympathy.

Lucille joined our Care Givers Group when taking care of your Father. She was very pleasant and a welcome asset to
our meetings. I saw her at Keystone Villa also with a smile on her face. I really enjoyed being in her presence. May
God bless, comfort and strengthen all of you children now and in the days ahead. Beverly Miller
