GILKIE - In loving memory of our son, Denny, who was lost at sea, March 8, 1988.
We seldom ask for miracles, But today just one would do,
So see the door open wide, And see our son walk through.
When we recall the good and bad times, That we use to share,
It's then we miss you most of all, Especially this time of year.
To raise a son and lose him, Is a hurt nobody knows,
Except all other Moms and Dads, Who have traveled down that road.
Always loved and sadly missed, Mom and Dad.
GRADY - In loving memory of my mother, Mary, who passed away March 8th, 1990.
In our hearts your memory lingers, Sweetly tender, fond and true.
There is not a day, dear mother, That we do not think of you.
Always loved and sadly missed by daughter, Cookie and husband Donnie.
