God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be

So, He put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away

And although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay.

A Golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

On April 6, 2019, our Mother, Lucille Walker Penton went home to be with Jesus. She was born Dec. 10, 1928.

She is survived by two daughters, Julia and Richard Cook, and Mary Garner. She is also survived by nine grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and several great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by two daughters, Evelyn Thornhill and Janice Penton.

To God Be the Glory and Honor. Amen.

Graveside services were held at the Pounds Cemetery in Bogalusa, on Tuesday, April 9, with her grandson, the Rev. Rick Cook, officiating.
