Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Our thoughts are with the Schiener family. You all will have special memories of a great man to share through your grief. Share the smiles of all the memories of a wonderful father and community member. He surely will be greeted , with arms wide open, with “well done, my god and faithful servant.” You will see him again. Mark and Valerie Relyea
