IN LOVING MEMORY of my Dear Husband and Dear Dad EARL NORMAN who passed away March 4,
There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always precious memories
Of the days when you were here
We'll hold you close within our hears
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.
