Fisherman’s Prayer
I pray that I may live to fish until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord’s great landing net and peacefully asleep,
That in His mercy that I be judged big enough to keep.

A private family committal will be held at Broussard’s Crematorium, 5150 Stivers Drive, Beaumont.

Memorial contributions may be made to Wounded Warriors Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, Kansas 66675.
