God is like Pan-Am … He makes the going great. God is like General Electric … He lights your path. God is like Bayer Aspirin … He works wonders. God is like Hallmark cards … He cared enough to send the very best. God is like Tide … He gets the stains out that others leave behind. God is like VO Hair Spray … He holds through all kinds of weather. God is like Dial Soap … Aren’t you glad you know Him? Don’t you wish everybody did? God is like Sears … He has everything. God is like Alka Seltzer … Try Him; you’ll like Him! God Is Scotch Tape … You can’t see Him, but you know He’s there. God is like McDonald’s … He’ll do it all for you. God is like the American Express Card … Don’t leave home without Him. Please visit losangelesfh.com to offer condolences.
