Arrangements were made with Miller-Carlin Funeral Home, St. Cloud. They were just 'Rural Folks' This poem was written for and dedicated to George and Cathy Schmit of Eden Valley By Bob Beskar (son-in-law) Theywent to meet the Lord: Dad 1/23/03 * Mom 1/28/05 Once again this time of year Brings to us a special tear! But they still live within our heart And give us strength though we're apart! Mom and Dad had roots to the earth And loved the land from early birth! The work was hard and the hours long But it made them tough and very strong! They didn't complain like folks do now If they didn't know; they just asked how? They loved to garden and ate what they grew And tried to pass on what they knew, too! When Sunday came, it was time to rest And go to church in their very best! Life was a challenge just like today But Mom and Dad would find a way They fed us kids, and provided our needs And worked for survival and not for greed! That's how we remember our Mom and Dad They were the best, and we're so glad! They taught us well and to carry on For the short term then, and years beyond! God Bless them both, for we miss them a lot Assumption Church Mass schedule Marriage Encounter Weekends Rabbi to speak at St. John's Starting the weekend of Jan. 26 and 27, Masses will be back to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 8 and 10 a.m. Sunday.
