Dora Mae Cone

October 29th,1929-October 3rd, 2016

On a lovely country hillside,
So far far away:
I built a sturdy litehouse,
For both of us to stay.

I built it each and every night,
After you had went to sleep:
Knowing someday very soon,
That's where we two shall meet.

To spend our lives together,
In eternity you know:
I know this is the truth you see,
Because the Lord he told me so.

Until that day you come to me,
I'll wait so patiently:
To gaze into your eyes again,
For all eternity.

Dancing forever
Mr. and Mrs. Arden J. Cone Jr.

With her children by her side the Lord sent his angels to gently lift her up unto heaven into his loving arms.
She lived her life dedicated to her family. Her husband, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren,  and friends whom she loved, worshipped and adored.
