Time is not measured by the years that you live,
But the deeds that you do and the joy that you give,
And each day as it comes brings a chance to each one,
To love to the fullest, leaving nothing undone.
So what does it matter how long we may live,
If as long as we live, we unselfishly give,
You are not forgotten loved one, nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last we will remember thee.
Funeral arrangements are under the direction of
S. W. Chant Funeral Home
