In memory of
who passed away
December 13, 1995
In loving memory of
As it was said when we lost Dad
We are orphans now, how sad.
Though this may be true
We are luckier than most, for we had you.
As you told us all the time
You choose your friends over time,
But families you do not.
Families you were given for reasons we know not.
We have our ups and downs
And some may say we’re clowns.
But all of what we are,
Even when shooting for a star,
This comes from both of you.
You can try to deny it, but it’s true,
You planted the seed
That started this path, oh yes indeed.
Sometimes we seem so far apart
Then others we seem so smart,
But whatever it is we do,
It still comes back to you.
So at Christmas, this is especially true,
We stand together and honor you.
We miss you each and every day
And surely you know this, we pray.
We save your spot still
And at times we get a chill
As we know you are near
Which may cause us to shed a tear.
Not saying this is bad
Just makes us a little sad
For we wish we had expressed ourselves better
Instead of now putting it in a letter.
We believe you’re in a better place
Until we meet again face to face,
We wish you a “Merry Christmas” from all of us.
The family of
Christine and Butch Brown
In loving memory of
Fred and Anne Combs
It’s that time of year again
When hope and joy begin.
I know it should be here
Throughout the entire year.
But at Christmas it’s especially so
That’s when people let it flow
And all the things you use to do
Though we may not remember the gifts that were bought,
We certainly remember the warm Christmas thought.
We remember the Christmas cheer,
The parties and, yes, the beer.
We remember the good times had
Even if we were a little bad.
We hope that Heaven knows
How greatly God chose
When He took you from us
And all “your” kids on your bus.
We look forward to a time
When we’re together instead of remembering with a rhyme.
So, with that being said,
We will continue to got to bed
Remembering your cheer, your smile,
Wishing all peace and joy for awhile.
We miss you more than you know,
But we’ll keep on letting your Christmas spirit show!
The Combs Family
