Funeral Service:

Out of this life I'm unable to take
All of the many things 1 make
All that 1 cherish and hoard away
After I leave, on earth must stay
All that 1 gather, and all that 1 keep
1 must leave behind when 1 fall asleep

And 1 wonder often what 1 shall own
In that other life, when I pass alone
What shall they find and what shall they see
In the soul that answers the call of me?
Shall the great Judge learn, when my task is through
That my spirit has gathered some riches, too?
Or shall at the last it be mine to find
That all that I'd worked for I'd left behind.



Born June 16, 1903 at Goodrich, North Dakota, USA.
Passed away December 27, 1994 in Grande Prairie, Alberta, at the age of 91 years.
