Kevin & Family ,Stan,Kay ,Michael, Jenn, & Sons.       When tomorrow starts without us please try to understand, That an Angel came & called Our names & took us by the hand ; The Angle said our places were ready, In Heaven far above.& that we would have to leave behind all those we loved. But when we walked through Heaven’s Gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down , smiled @ me & told us “Welcome Home”. So when tomorrow starts without me. Don’t think we are far apart, for every time you think of  Dar, Don & Jeff  we are right there in your heart . Love & Hugs to you all !
