HARTLIN - In loving memory of our parents, Effie Hartlin who passed away February 21, 1984 and Judson Hartlin who passed away November 29, 1991. Always in our hearts.
In loving memory our dad,
Robert Sr., January 16, 1980; our mother, Maude, July 18, 1983 and brother, George,
February 21, 1996.
We thought of you with love today,
But this is nothing new;
We thought of you yesterday,
And the day before that, too.
Our hearts still ache with sadness,
And secret tears still flow,
For what it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.
They say time heals all sorrow,
And helps us to forget,
But time has only shown us,
How much we miss you yet.
To us you were so special,
What more is there to say,
Except to wish with all our hearts,
That you were here today.
Daughters, Maude & Frances; sons, Jesse & Robert.
