Cremation arrangements entrusted to

Schoening Funeral Service,


Someone lost their friend today

And though we cannot heal their hearts

We can live each day from now with hope

That with every ending there is a new start 

Someone lost their sister today

And though their aching souls we cannot ease

We can live each day from now with the memory

Of her vibrance, and not her dis-ease

 Someone lost their grandmother today

And though that void we can’t replace

We can live each day from now with love

And remember only her smiling face

Someone lost their mother today

And though we can only console them at best

We can live each day from now knowing

That she is finally peaceful at rest.
