And then one day, We all cross that river, And fight life's final war with pain, And then, as Death gives way to victory, I'll see the light of glory and I know he reigns, Because he lives I can face tomorrow, Because he lives all fear is gone, Because I know, I know he holds the future, And life is worth living because he lives.

There will be no services at this time.
