Kaiser -- In Loving Memory of WILLIAM J. (BILL) KAISER You left us one year ago to go live with God, but will live forever in our hearts.God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you And whispered,"Come with Me."With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and saw you fade away. Although we love you dearly, We could not make you stay.A golden heart stopped beating Hardworking hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us... That He only takes the best!It's lonesome here without you, We miss you more each day. Life doesn't seem the same, Since you went away.When days are sad and lonely, and everything goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper, "Cheer up and carry on."Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say, "Don't cry, I'm in God's hands, We'll meet again someday!"From your loving wife, children, grandchildren and four brothers, Jim, Frank, Jack and Dan.
