ARCHIBEQUE JR. -- Dan IN LOVING MEMORY OF Dan Archibeque Jr. June 3, 1936 - December 11, 2002 God knew you were failing That the hills were hard to climb So he gently closed your eye lids And whispered, "Peace be Thine" In tears we watched you leaving and watched you being carried away Our hearts were near to breaking You fought so hard to stay It broke our hearts to see you go But you did not go alone For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Wish you were here, Love and miss you Dad. The Archibeque Family
