Eugene Arp Obituary
Eugene Robert Arp
In Loving Memory
God saw you were
getting tired
and a cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you
and whispered come with me
With tearful eyes
we watched you
As we saw you pass away
Although we love you deeply
We could not make you stay
Your golden heart
stopped beating
Hard workings hands at rest
God broke our hearts
to prove to us
He only takes the best

Those things we do for others live on and on
