Sanchez -- In Loving Memory JULIUS ANTONIO SANCHEZ March 16, 1981 - July 28, 1998Happy Birthday Mijo We love and miss you so much Mother Shirley, Brother Raymond and your new nephew Jacob Julius SanchezIN GOOD HANDS It seems like only yesterday we crossed the street together And with his little hand in mine we faced the stormy weather. We shared the laughter and the fun, and sometimes there were tears, And I was happy to be there to chase his childhood fears. In retrospect, I can't believe how quickly time has flown, and with a mother's pride I see how fine my son has grown. No longer shall I lead the way; his hand is larger than mine. And so, dear Lord, I place his hand forever into Thine.
