JONES, Betty B.
JONES - In loving memory of my daughter, Betty B. Jones, who passed away suddenly April 16th, 1998.
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be,
So He closed His arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to me."

And so He gave you rest,
His garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
