    Barry, a longtime mate and friend of John and Sandra.

    God saw that you were weary,
    The hill too steep to climb,
    He gently closed your tired eyes,
    And whispered “Peace be thine”.

    Our thoughts are with Shirley and family.

    With love,
    John and Sandra Tucker and family.
