    To: Jeffrey L. & Karen Kuhn and Family,

    God hath not promised
    Skies always blue,
    Flower-strewn pathways
    All our lives through;
    God hath not promised
    Sun without rain,
    Joy without sorrow,
    Peace without pain.

    But God hath promised
    Strength for the day,
    Rest for the labor,
    Light for the way,
    Grace for the trials,
    Help from above,
    Unfailing sympathy
    Undying love…..

    Our Deepest Sympathy and Love,

    Charles L. & Gary L. Kirkpatrick
