FRY, Goldie Phyllis
FRY - In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother, Goldie Phyllis, who passed away February 9, 1995.
God took her Home, it was His will,
But in our hearts we love her still;
Her memory is as dear today
As in the hour she passed away.
We often sit and think of her
When we are all alone,
For memory is the only friend
That grief can call its own.
Deeply missed and lovingly remembered, by Fitz, Marilyn, Elaine, Gloria and Families.
