In Loving Memory of

Reverend Monsignor Arthur J Kane
born February 7th 1910
Ordained June 6th, 1936
went to his reward June 2nd 1999
laid to rest  June 6th, 1999

Guided by the strength of God's own hand
Father Arthur Kane took a piece of land
and he Erected a Church, Saint Elizabeth
as if led by words of God's own breath

He raised the walls and the roof above
and filled it's halls with a special love
St. E's came alive and reached out to all
echoing the beauty of  a Heavenly call

He talked of God to both adult and child
with energy, and charisma, yet staying mild
His rye sense of humor made you snicker and laugh
for you  knew the joke was on your behalf

He visited the sick even when his health fell
thinking only of others who were not feeling well
He will be truly missed by both  young and old
for his happy spirit and his heart of gold

So, dear God, now that Arthur is at his reward
we know you wont ever be feeling very bored
For if we know Artie, now that he's with you
there are many things up there he has planned to do
