It’s Been One Year
God saw you getting tired,; He did what He thought best; He put His arms around you, and said, “Come and rest.” He opened up His golden gates on that heartbreaking day; And with his arms around you, You gently slipped away. It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go alone; A part of us went with you, The day God called you home.

We Miss You!
Love from Nora, Mike, Carmen, Louis Jr., Virginia, and Kayla, your grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and the rest of your family.
