In Memoriam Charles Mark Carson
Aug. 13, 1968 - Aug. 11, 1997
I am home in Heaven dear ones
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last. 
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you
So you must not idly stand,
Do it now, while life remaineth
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed
He will gently call you home
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
With loving memories from your Family,
Mom and Dad, Connie, Scott, Mike, Eric and Eric Hutchins.
