Todd Michael Gauthier March 1, 1961 – Feb. 2, 1991 A gift for such a little while, Your loss just seems so wrong. You shouldn’t have left before us, It’s with loved ones you belong. At first we tried to wish you back, But now we’ve come to see Our grief is our own heartache, You’re where we prayed you’d be. And now that you’re in heaven’s home We try to understand it’s with loved ones you reside. You’re in God’s own hand. We love you and miss you. Mom, Moe, Tyler, Tess, Mark, David, Scott, Holli, Jeff

In Loving Memory of Anthony Wayne Dandridge July 24, 1959 – Feb. 16, 1999 It has been one year since you were here. We wish you could’ve stayed. We love you still and always will. Our memories of you will never fade. Our sweet Hunter wears your smile and our sweet Jackson, he’s got your style. I thank you for our precious boys who make it all worthwhile. We know that you’re in Heaven, we know that you’re okay, but we will always miss you every single day. All our love, Amanda, Hunter, and Jackson.
Anthony (Tony) Wayne Dandridge July 24, 1959-Feb. 16, 1999. SAFELY HOME I am home in Heaven, dear ones; Oh so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, Safely home in Heaven at last. Did you wonder I so calmly Trod the valley of the shade? Oh! but Jesus’ love illuminated Every dark and fearful glade. And He came Himself to meet me In that way so hard to tread; And with Jesus’ arm to lean on, Could I have one doubt or dread? Then you must not grieve so sorely, For I love you dearly still: Try to look beyond earth’s shadows, Pray to trust our Father’s Will. There is work still waiting for you, So you must not idly stand; Do it now, while life remaineth- You shall rest in Jesus’ land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you Home; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh the joy to see you come! We love you, Mom, Walter, Mira, Nelda, Paula and The Boys.
TRISTAN KELLY LAMOUREUX 2/15/98-2/16/98 Not everyone knows this, but truly it’s true. Little Angel Babies have big jobs to do. In gardens and meadows, they coax forth the flowers, with sunlight and love, and gentle rain showers… -A favorite story of your twin brother Jacob. Loving, missing, and remembering you today. Happy Birthday Baby B. -Mama, Daddy, Jacob and loving family.

February 24
THELMA MAE (CHAGNON) KERSHNER 2/24/25 – 11/28/99 GOD’S GARDEN God looked around his garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the Earth, And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful; He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering; He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on Earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb, So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, ""Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home We love and miss you greatly, Your Family
February 27
DAVID DEROUCHIE February 27, 1980 Today you would have been 20 years old. We think of you with each passing day. We will always love and miss you. To David in heaven, Happy Birthday! Your loving family
LUCILLE C. LEFEVRE 8/29/31 – 2/27/99 We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday And days before that too. Memories are treasures no one can steal; Death is a heartache no one can heal. We think of you in silence; We often speak you rname. Now all we have is memories And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake With which we’ll never part. God has you in his keeping; We have you in our heart. Life must go on, we know it’s true, But it’s not the same since we lost you. In loving memory, John and Lorraine
