BURNS, Louise
BURNS - In loving memory of my wife, Louise, who passed away April 22, 1997.
It is lonely here without you,
I miss you more each day,
For life is not the same to me.
Since you were called away.
It's sad to live my life alone,
Without you by my side,
But always comes a moment,
When our path of lives divide.
Among my lonely hours,
Is one thing that makes me glad,
That you chose to share with you,
Those precious years we had.
Dearly loved and remembered by husband Edward and family.
