In Jesus Precious name I pray you walk to the lord.

Your Oldest Granddaughter with all my love until we meet again.
Always There
How sweet to know. dear angel fair.
That you are ever near
To guard and guide me day and night,
To whisper in my ear
That God is great. His grace divine,
His love for all a love sublime
And as you lead the steps I take
With tender, loving care,
I thank the Lord with humble heart
That you are always there

With All My Love : Your oldest grandchild

vI chevalier:

Papaw I will always keep you in my memory.

Never Doubt There Are Angels

Never doubt there are angels
Among us all the time,
Those who come to encourage us
when there's a hill to climb.
They're the ones who sit beside us
When it's our turn to mourn.
And the ones who shore our joy
When we welcome a newborn.
They're the ones who come to visit
Or call us now and then
Just to say they have missed us
And wonder how we've been.
They may be our friends and neighbors
Or strangers who pass our way.
Never doubt there are angels
WE see them everyday!

Love You Papaw . GOD SPEED Scott Hunley

PWB: Clay Harrison

Papaw GOD SPEED! I want to let you know that You always will be in my heart.

Angels guardian you and me,
Watching over us night and day.
Gifts from God bestowed on us,
To help us journey life's highway.
They speak to us within our hearts
With Language all their own;

Steering us from evil's path,
Their presence is always known.
Hand in hand we'll go before
Our God, eternally blessed.
Together we'll reach our heavenly home
And with him will forever rest.

Love your Granddaughter : Eugenia Fender (Hunley) and Family
