Obituary for John W. Strange, Sr.

John W. Strange, Sr., 86, died November 5, 2020.

God saw the road was getting rough,
The hills were hard to climb,
He gently closed those loving eyes
And whispered, “Peace Be Thine”.
The weary hours, the days of pain,
The sleepless nights are past;
The ever patient worn out frame,
Has found sweet rest at last.
