Obituary for Virginia McClelland

John 11:25-26" Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

A smile for all, a heart of gold, one of the finest this world could hold
Never selfish, always kind, these are the memories she leaves behind…

When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little – but not for long, and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that once we shared; Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we must all take, and each must go alone.
It’s all part of the master plan, a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know,
Laugh at all the things we used to do, Miss me, but let me go.

Celebration of Life Services will be conducted Friday, February 25, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at Logan Presbyterian Church in Scotts. Reverend Kaye Barrow-Ziglar, Pastor, will officiate and burial will follow in the Logan Presbyterian Church Cemetery.
