In Memory

In loving memory of Larry J.
Shade on his birthday, October
We miss you,
Love from your family,
Judy, Lori, Nathan and Kurt
In loving memory of our
mother, Anna M. Deshong, who
passed away October 25, 1998:
A Mother’s Love
A mother’s love is something
That no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
And of sacrifice and pain
It is endless and unselfish
And enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
Or take that love away
It is patient and forgiving
When all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
Even though the heart is breaking
It believes beyond believing
When the world around condemns
And it glows with all the beauty
Of the rarest, brightest gems
It is far beyond defining
It defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
Like the mysteries of creation
A many splendoured miracle
Man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
Of God’s tender guiding hand
–Helen Steiner Rice
Love always,
Your children


In memory of Harvey and and
Madeline Seville, who passed
away October 21, 2006:
The Reunion Heart
Since heaven has become your home
We sometimes feel so alone;
And though we now are far apart
You hold a big piece of our hearts
We never knew how much we
would grieve
When it was time for you to leave
Or just how much our hearts
would ache
From that one fragment you
would take
God lets this tender hole remain
Reminding us we will meet again
And one day all the pain will cease
When he restores this missing piece
He’ll turn to joy our every tear
And when we wear our piece
It will become our simple way
To treasure our reunion day.
The reunion heart is a symbol of
God’s promise of a reunion in

For those who believe where
there will be
No more tears.
Dad and Mom forever in our
Missing you and loving you,
Lisa, Dorothy, Crissy
and families
