BRADLEY, William and Murray
BRADLEY - In loving memory of a dear husband and father William, who passed away February 16, 1997 and a dear son and brother Murray, who passed away July 10, 1989.
Don't think of them as gone away,
Their journey's just begun,
Life holds so many facets,
The earth is only one.
Just think of them as resting
From the sorrows and the cares,
In a place of warmth and comfort,
Where there are no days or years.
And think of them as living
In the hearts of those they touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost
And they were loved so much.
Forever loved and sadly missed, Eileen & family.
