23rd Psalms The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in the green pastures; He leadeth me besides the still waters. He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me on the paths of righteousness for his name sake, Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and the staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Musical Prelude Processional
Since you’ve been called home Life just hasn’t been the same There’s nothing we wouldn’t do or give To have you here again The time we had together seems so short Know that it meant the world to all of us Your quick wit, your laughter and beautiful smile Will forever be precious memories We’re so grateful for the time we had As husband, children, siblings, grandchildren, great grand children and family And the closeness we shared You were a wonderful wife, mother, sister and grandmother The rock we all depended on We will miss you our dear Anita

Perhaps you have sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you prayed a special prayer or came to pay a call. Perhaps you sang a cheerful song, if so, we heard it all. Perhaps you’d spoke the kindest words as any friend could say. Perhaps you rendered a service unseen near at hand or from afar. Whatever you did to console our hearts, by word or deed or touch. Whatever the kindly part, we thank you, oh so very much. You have freshened our desert with flowers and rain. T HE S IMS F AMILY
