    Love and condolences family, Aunt Louise, Avis, EJ, & Jeffrey- Love Mischiel

    Death is a gateway
    We all must pass through,
    To reach the fair land
    Where the soul’s born anew.
    For man’s born to die,
    And his sojourn on earth,
    Is a short span of years
    Beginning with birth.

    And like Pilgrims we wander,
    Until death takes our hand,
    And we start on the journey
    To God’s Promised Land.
    A place where we’ll find
    No suffering or tears,
    Where time is not counted
    In days, months, or years.

    And in that fair city
    That God has prepared,
    Are unending joys
    To be happily shared
    With all of our loved one’s
    Who patiently wait,
    On death’s other side
    To open the gate.
