S. LOMMICK FINCH

In Memory Of Bobbie S. Lommick Finch

Tuesday, March 18, 1991, our Father in Heaven called you home.

It doesn't seem possible six years have passed, I miss you as of yesterday. It's hard to face tomorrow when some one you love has gone. But the Lord won't give you burdens which he knows you cannot bear, and He will not leave your comfortless. You'll always find Him there.

We give praise to the doctors and nurses of Eliza Coffee Hospital and Helen Keller Hospital.

Yet we can't forget our doctors and nurses at Segars Clinic. We give praise to Dr. Kelly Segars for the many years of service. So many times you (Bobbie) would say, "Mother, if I was at home, Dr. Kelly Segars would stop this pain.

We don't realize what great doctors we have here in Iuka. We don't praise them enough and the nurses at Segars Clinic were sweet to you (Bobbie), you spoke of them many times.

Dr. Kelly and Scott Segars were always there when we I needed them. They were concerned and thoughtful of you.

Our Father in Heaven knew you could stand no more pain. It was time for you to join Him in , His Heavenly home. Death is not snuffing out life's flame precipitating strife; it's like the first faint flush of dawn and death is not some dead-end street where life abruptly ends; it is a door that leads to realms where fairer life begins. Death is not endless wandering like the trails the Nomads trod; it is the sweetest road to life, the nearest path to God. Death is not some dark ordeal necessitating fear, for it's as calm as peaceful sleep. In arms of someone dear.

Bobbie you will always be in our hearts, we miss you. Speaking for all your sixth grade students (Bobbie), they miss you too.

Your Mother, Mama Mattie Your Son, Dan Finch Your Sister, Juanita Wolfard
