HAMM, James Victor
HAMM - In loving memory of James Victor, who passed away nine years ago February 19, 1991.
What I would give to clasp your hand,
Your happy face to see,
To hear your voice and see your smile,
That meant so much to me.
No length of time, no lapse of years,
Can dim our memory of you.
Gone is the face we loved so dear,
Silent is the voice we loved to hear,
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach.
Hard working hands laid to rest,
In life he did his very best.
Always loved and missed and never forgotten by wife Phyllis and son Neil.
WRIGHT - In loving memory of my brother, Bradley who passed away February 19, 1998.
Resting where no shadows fall
And peaceful sleep awaits us all,
God will link the broken chain
When one by one, we meet again.
We miss you, sister Cheryl and brother-in-law Dale
