Obituary: James Earl Lay Jr.

July 15, 1980 - February 3, 2013

God looked around his Garden found an empty place.

He then looked down upon his earth

and saw your loving face.

He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.

His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering; he knew were in pain And knew that you would never get well on earth again.

He saw your path was difficult, he closed your tired eyes, He whispered to you ‘Peace by Thine’

and gave you wings to fly.

When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,

We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again. You’ve left us precious memories,

your love will be our guide,

You live on through your children,

you’re always by our side.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.

In loving memory son, husband, father and friend.
