ATKINS - In fond and loving memory of a great Sister Effie Rowena Atkins, R.N. who passed away on June 6, 2003 age 52.

Always loved and forever remembered in our hearts by Gertie and sister-in-law Gertie.

We miss him here so very much, His presence oft seems nigh, But we hope in heaven to meet Where no one says good-bye.

You always were so good to us, You heart was good as gold, We loved you more than words can tell, Though it was seldom told. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say good-bye; You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. We hold you close within our hearts, And there you will remain; To walk with us throughout our lives, Until we meet again. So you who have a father, Cherish him with care; For you'll never know the heartache, Til you see his vacant chair.

HICKEY - In loving memory of a dear Father, Grandfather, Father-in-law and Friend Joe Hickey who passed away suddenly on June 7, 2002. Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, And danced the skies on laughter - silvered wings;Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth, Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soured and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the wind swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or even eagle flew - And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod The high untresspassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand and touched the face of God. Forever loved and always missed son Duane, daughter-in-law Shelley and grandson Chad. - June 05, 2004
