To the late Ronald Publicover, Family
"The Setting of the Sun"
The glory of the setting sun
That paints the evening sky
Reminds the heart that life
holds so much more than meets the
And like the golden sunset,
When a loved one leaves this earth,
Each tear that falls reminds us
Just how much each life is worth,
For in our hearts,
the golden glow of memory shines bright,
Spreading hope and comfort through the shadows of the night...
And in this way,
Your heart may find the strength to see you through.
Cherishing the memories that mean so much to you.

With deepest and sincere sympathy to you and your family.

Lionel Young Jr and Family
