Sacred To The Memory of
PATRICK GRACEY
who departed this life January 9,1810.
aged 110 years
The busy scene of life is closed.
The body's laid in calm repose:
The happy soul has gone to rest,
Reclining on its Saviour's breast.
An active, useful life is o'er
And sin shall ne'er disturb it more;
Where cares no more shall spoil its peace.
It shall enjoy enternal rest.
"Tis but a few whose days amount
To five score years and ten:
And all beyond that same account
Are sorrow, toil and pain.

COLOR="#000000"
Father of the Bride toast To Lisa our daughter
From Father and Mother
And, oh yes, to one other
Your Mike that we love

Providence brought you together
I'm sure of it now.
But, before I forget it,
Yvonne, take a bow!
. COLOR="#000000"

............................................... COLOR="#000000" My heart wants to say
all kinds of good things,
To you both about sharing,
and caring; the joy that it brings.

I wish I could give you a plan for your life
that would assure wedded bliss - without strife.
But such wisdom, I fear, escapes me today,
except to remind you that God is the WAY.

God, through His Holy Scripture, did proclaim,
"Before I formed you in your mother's womb,
I knew you" ¹ and "I have called you by name" ².

And remember when Jesus was saying goodbye
to his disciples just before he was going to die?
Something about rooms that His Father's house had
and His promise of how one's for us makes me glad.

I believe God has a plan for us all;
Each sister and brother.
Just what? I'm not sure.
But, for our part, it is
to love Him and each other.

So, to Mike and to Lisa
May your love grow and grow
As strong as the mountains
As great as the sea
Not for just a life time,
But for eternity
