In Memory of Albert F. Spawn

In Memory of Albert F. Spawn 4/25/25-12/27/05


December 24 seems to come faster every year,

All who gather in our home that night are especially dear.

There’s a new baby’s face among our family tree,

That I wish so much you were here to see.


No matter how much time passes,

I still love you still.

Just know that your place in my heart,

Nobody will ever fill.


As you look down from Heaven above,

I wish you lots of peace and love.


Merry Christmas

Love Bet and Family
