  1. John and I are so sorry to learn of the loss of your Dad: God saw him getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So He put his arms around him, And whispered .Come with Me.. With tearful eyes we watched you. And saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped breathing. Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. ….. Sincerest Sympathy……………………………… ….. John Coassin & Linny Woodward.
