In Loving Memory of
Strickland, Raymond J.
Sept. 22,1943 to Oct. 31 , 2006
God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be. So He closed His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.” And you answered, “yes”, and I knew to whom you spoke. Thou I could see them not. Their Presences was a joy, eternal peace and comfort abided. You were carried swiftly away to him our creator. May the days now that are pain free, be happy tis only a bit and I will be there. Your pain and restlessness and all anguish is over. So I cannot wish you not go. I will miss you. Thinking of you. You could always make me laugh, your heart was kind and gentle. We had a good season Not enough time but I will see you yet again. This love a heart holds dear. Fond memories linger every day.
Remembrance keeps him dear to me. “You are forever in our hearts”. With deepest love, your wife Katherine and the children Jamie, Kelly, Mark, Kevin, Sarah, Brian, Charles.
