February 14, 1945 – March 08, 2014
God saw you were getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he wrapped you in his loving arms
And whispered, “Come with me”
You suffered much in silence
Your spirit did not bend
You faced your pain with courage
Until the very end
You tried so hard to stay with us
Your fight was all in vain
God took you in his loving arms
And saved you from all the pain
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Garry Donald Alger.
