In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Lorne W. MERNER, who passed away 15 years ago July 10th, 1991.
We little knew that morning
That God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home
Forever loved, wife Liz and family.
