Duffy, Charlie (In Memoriam)  
IN LOVING MEMORY OF DAD CHARLIE DUFFY Laid to rest a year ago God chose to take you suddenly, I was not prepared for His claim. He showed you Light, gave comfort then called you Home by name. A heart of gold stopped beating, we laid you down to rest; I often want to shout out loud, "I miss you dearly Dad, you really are the best". Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part; God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart. So if you knew dear ole "Duff", then lift your glass today; I think if he were toasting, this is what he'd say. "Here's to a long life and a merry one; A quick death and an easy one; A pretty girl and an honest one; A cold beer--and another one!" Love Always and Forever Lisa and children, Family and Friends
