Resided in Marietta, GA


Death came quietly and gave me gentle sleep,
To those that I leave behind, please don't weep.

The good Lord giveth, and at times, He taketh away,
Nothing on His earth is forever here to stay.

Rejoice now and celebrate the life He gave to me.

All things that happen are surely meant to be.

When I was alive, you were all so dear, If you just remember the good times, you'll feel that I am near.

It's times like these that weigh heavy on the heart,
Put a smile on your face and make a brand new start.

Family and friends I loved, please don't weep,
Death came quietly and gave me gentle sleep.
