RAWLINGS, Millie
In loving memory of Millie RAWLINGS, who passed away January 15, Beautiful memories are wonderful things,
They last 'til the longest day.
They never wear out, never get lost,
And can never be given away.
To some you may be forgotten
To others a part of the past,
But to us who love and lost you
Your memory will always last
- Sadly missed by husband Murry and family.

RAWLINGS, Joseph
In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, who left us ten years ago, April 6, 1998.
Another page in the memory book
Silently turns today
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find.
Remembrance is a golden chain
which death can never sever,
To have, to love and then to part,
Is the greatest sorrow of the heart
The years may wipe out several things,
But some they wipe out never,
Like memories of happier times
when we were all together.
- Ever remembered by wife, Violet, Wayne and Debbie, Sharon and families, Rob, Jennifer and Grayden, April, Shane, Hailey and Jesse; Mark, Jocelyn and Caleb, Christine and John, Arthur and Kim.
