The family would like to extend at special thank you to Reverend Leon Knitt, Maggie Maginis, Sister Dorothy and the staff of St. Paul Home.

God saw he was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be;
So He put His arms around him,
And whispered 'Come with me.'
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest;
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
