In memory of
FAITH L. JOA (nee CHRISTENSEN) April 5, 1947 - June 21, 2010 It seems like just yesterday you were still here with us We know it's been two years now But time hasn't diminished The thoughts of you. And the many things that you meant to us It's not easy passing by you every day and not being able to see or feel you but knowing you are there waiting to be seen and heard. We love you and miss you very much and know you are in a very special place. Daily Wish (Phil Perkins) My daily wish is that we may See good in those who pass our way; Find in each a worthy trait That we shall gladly cultivate; See in each one passing by The better things that beautify A softly spoken word of cheer, A kindly face, a smile sincere. I pray each day that we may view The things that warm one's heart anew; The kindly deed that can't be bought That only from good are wrought, A burden lightened here and there, A brother lifted from despair, The aged ones freed from distress; The lame, the sick, brought happiness. Grant that before each sun has set We'll witness deeds we can't forget; A soothing hand to one in pain, A sacrifice for love - not gain; A word to ease the troubled mind Of one whom fate has dealt unkind. So, friend, my wish is that we may See good in all who pass our way. Our thoughts are with you always Your loving husband Lyle and your son Donald
