Messages of condolence may be left online at www.earlyfuneralhome.com "Do not weep for me, for I am not dead, I have fallen asleep in a place of rest, a place of peace, a place of green pastures where pain, sorrow and sighing are no more. You shall see me at the edge of the forest, where the deer frolic, the birds sing, and sun shines on the morning dew."
