To hear their voices, To see their smiles, As in the days it used to be.
But some sweet day we'll meet again, Beyond the toil and strife,
And clasp each other's hands once more, In Heaven, that happy life.
Always remembered by daughter Doris, son-in-law Eddy, grandchildren, and daughter Hilda and family
