We watched you slowly fade away
We tried so hard to make you stay
But God was watching from above
And took you home to share his love
Perhaps your time seemed all too brief
We won't burden it now with undue grief
We will lift up our hearts and peace to thee
God wanted you now. He set your free.
In our memories you will live on
The chain will link again.
The Management and Staff of Square Deal Funeral Home sincerely thank the Simon family for entrusting us with the final rites of Mr. Jimmie "Sonny Boy" Simon.
