IN LOVING MEMORY OF

CARLTON D. MONK

April 30, 1946 - January 18, 2014

 

God saw you were getting tired

And a cure was not to be

So he put his arms around you

And whispered “Come to Me”

With tearful eyes we watched you

And saw you pass away

Although we loved you dearly

We could not make you stay
