“Snooks, Mom and Grandmother”

When you’re alone with Jesus

And He sweetly smiles on thee,

Will you gently whisper to Him

a little prayer for me?

And when I’m alone with Jesus

and all else is hid  from view,

I’ll gently drop into His heart a

little prayer for you.


Mach Funeral Chapel is serving the family.
