            "The clock of life is wound but once and no one has the power

             to tell just when the hands will stop at late or early hour.  Now

             is the only time you own.  Live, love, toil with a will.  Place no

             faith in tomorrow for the clock may then be still."


Private Graveside Services will be held at the convenience of the family at the Mifflinville Cemetery with Chaplain Bob Barner, Geisinger Hospice, officiating.
