IN MEMORIAMS MACK In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Philip, who passed away Feb- ruary 7, 1970. We do not need a special day To bring you to our minds, The days we do not think of you Are very hard to find. They say that time heals all sorrow And helps us to forget, But time so far has only proven How much we miss you yet. God gave us strength to carry on And courage to face the blow, But what it meant to lose you No one will ever know. To know we never said good- bye, Will always bring regret, But the hearts that loved you dearly Are the ones that won't forget. remembered and sadly missed by mother, dad, Judy, Norma and grandma. 4030 GROVES In loving memory of a dear father, Harry Groves. who passed away January 29, 1969.
