BURGESS, Raewyn Dawn:
1948 – 2019
I have lost my soul’s companion,
A life linked with my own,
And day by day I miss her more,
As I walk through alone,
Until some day we’ll be side by side.
CULLEN, John William (JC):
Twenty years have passed since that sad day,
When one we loved was called away.
God took him home; it was His will,
But in our hearts he liveth still.
All our love
