D. A. SLAY (Daniel Alexander Slay) "Sandy"
Died Aug. 27, 1922
Age 53 years

Gone but not forgotten

A precious one from us has gone
   A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
   Which never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled,
   The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
   The soul is safe in heaven.

(Sandy was the son of Alex Slay, Jr. and Mary Amanda (Martin) Slay)
