RANDALL, Douglas C.
RANDALL - In loving memory of our dad, Douglas, who passed away May 23rd 1979.
The month of May comes with deep regret,
It brings back memories, We will never forget.
No farewells were spoken, No time to say good-bye,
You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why.
It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone,
Part of us went with you, The day God called you home.
Forever loved and missed Jean, Rose and Margaret
