In Loving memory of a fallen brother and friend to many.....we will miss you....

"He slipped out the door quietly and into our Father's arms where he is now whole, new and pain free.  Our hearts hurt...our eyes overflow"

Letter from Heaven

To my dearest family ... there's some things I'd like to say,
but first of all, to let you know that I have arrived okay;
I'm writing this from heaven, here I dwell with God above,
where there's no more tears of sadness ... there is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight;
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
The day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and said, "I welcome you!"
"It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone,
as for your dearest family, they'll be here later on."
"I need you here badly, as you're part of my plan;
There's so much that we have to do, To help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do;
and foremost on the list was to watch and care for you.
When you lie in bed at night, with the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you ... in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years,
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry, it does help to relieve pain;
remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all what God has planned;
But if I were to tell you, you really wouldn't understand.
There is one thing is for certain, although my life on earth is o'er,
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by just taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it to be for you too,
that as you give unto the world, the world will give back to you.
If you can ever help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night ... "My day was not in vain."
For now I am contented, That my life was worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I was able to make somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low ...
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go from that body to be free,
remember that you're not going ... You're coming here to me.

A Great day is coming

Heavens gates will open wide,

And all who love the Lord will enter in;

To join with their loved ones

who in Jesus Christ have died;

Our eternal life in Heaven to begin.

And the Lord Himself will greet us on that great and glorious day

And with the smile of the proudest Father He’ll look at us and say,

Welcome Home Children!  This is the place I’ve prepared for you.

Welcome home children, now that your work on earth is through.

Welcome home children, you who have followed so faithfully

Welcome home children! Welcome home children!

Here where I am you shall always be

Forever rejoicing with me.
