GONZALES -- Tony L. Gonzales December 6, 1939 - April 30, 2003 In Loving Memory-Happy Birthday We little knew that morning that God would call your name, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You're always at our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. We love and miss you, Viola, Ray, Theresa and Diana Your grandchildren; and great-grandchildren
