Those special memories of you will always bring a smile If only I could have you back for just a little while You always meant so much to me and always will do too The fact that you’re no longer here will always cause me pain But you’re forever in my heart until we meet again.

Your Niece, Shellia

Letter from Heaven

Poem for Linda

God walked beside you yesterday Today you’re in his care Don’t worry about tomorrow because God is always there.

When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn’t cry, the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.

Love and miss you, Carolyn

Love and miss you my dear sister

It’s so amazing but so true how the Lord looks out over His garden and pluck the rose that failing from among me and you. Too much darkness or so much pain. To Him another life, He has claimed. There are many to be plucked every day. The beauty of us he let us stay. If we keep living, there are going to be darkness and pain.

“What moves through me is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. I may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say goodbye, but little by little, I begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave me memories too beautiful to forget.” There are no goodbyes from me because you will always be in my heart.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything, tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answer. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. Philippians 4:6, 7

Dear Mom


A light I once had is gone A voice I love to hear is now silent. A place is vacant in the house which can never be filled. Only if I could talk to you one more time, and get one last hug. Thank You for making me the man I am today!

Love Your Son Nick

To My Mom

Even though my heart aches and I mourn, I still love you none the less. You are my best friend; the one I called on when I couldn’t call on anyone else. The bond that we shared can’t be broken even in death. As we lay your body down to rest, I just want you to know to me Mom; YOU ARE THE BEST

Always and Forever You Son Wayne G
