      “There is a long and winding road, along which each must go, It leads beyond the hill of time, into the sunset's glow, But only for a little while our loved ones leave our sight, For just beyond the hills they wait, in God's eternal light. Beyond the gate our loved one finds happiness and rest And there is comfort in the thought,?that a loving God knows best.”
