NAME BIRTH DEATH COMMENTS
Beck, John Henry April 19, 1939 Feb. 12, 1970 "I cannot say, and I will not say
That he is dead - he is just away!
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land.
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be,
Since he lingers there;
Think of him still as the same, I say:
He is not dead - he is just away!"

Midgett, Levene Wescott Nov. 29, 1890 Jan. 21, 1973 Loving ones from us have gone, voices loved are stilled
Their places vacant in our homes that never can be filled
God in his wisdom has recalled the boon His love has given
And though the bodies slumber here the souls are safe in Heaven.

Midgett, Levene W. Jr. Dec. 15, 1928 Apr. 13, 1951 Gone, but not forgotten.
Passed on beyond our mortal vision,
But now the thought is robbed of gloom.
Within the Father's many Mansions,
Still dwelling in another room.
Our darling whose going left us lonely,
Is scaling heights undreamed of yore,
And guided on by loves unfolding,
Has gone upstairs and shut the door.

Midgett, Lucretia W. Aug. 26, 1895 July 9, 1983 Mother
Loving ones from us have gone, voices loved are stilled
Their places vacant in our homes that never can be filled
God in his wisdom has recalled the boon His love has given
And though the bodies slumber here the souls are safe in Heaven.
