Pall Bearer

It is at once an honor
Yet poignant with thought
To help bear a friend
To her last resting place

She lived a devout and selfless life
Always giving with a smile
Strong in faith, an evangelist in voice
Yet with a sense of humor and self deprecation

Ellen Culp we send you officially on your way
But you are already with your Lord
Whom you loved and served 'til your dying day
You are at rest in the loving arms of Jesus

Pall Bearer(c)2005 Quentin Clingerman

Note: Ellen was 95 years of age. Her mind alert until she went into a coma a day before her death. We will miss this lively, lovely lady.
