In Memoriam
Monique Diane Kirkland Hodgson

February 12, 1965 - January 9, 2005       

Because He lives . . . And then one day I'll cross the river; I'll fight life's final war with pain,
And then as death gives way to vict'ry, I'll see the lights of glory, and I'll know He lives.


Special memories

bloom like beautiful

flowers . . .

in the garden of our


You are in our

thoughts today . . .

 and in our hearts . . .


May the Lord watch between all of us when we are absent from one another.  Genesis 31:49
