    I read of a man who stood to speak
    At the funeral of a friend
    He referred to the dates on his tombstone
    From the beginning to the end

    He noted that first came the date of his birth
    And spoke the following date with tears,
    But he said what mattered most of all
    Was the dash between those years

    For that dash represents all the time
    That he spent alive on earth.
    And now only those who loved him
    Know what that little line is worth.

    For it matters not how much we own;
    The cars, the house, the cash,
    What matters is how we live and love
    And how we spend our dash.

    My sincerest condolences

    The Dash…Linda Ellis

    Dave and I would like to extend our condolences to you Sally and to all of Ken’s family. It was a privilege to know a fine man like Ken. It is so hard to give someone that you love back to the Lord. I know that has been true in my life. But the wonderful memories that you have made together will be carried in your heart and you count yourself blessed to have known him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Laura Jungmichel and Dave Williams
