IN REMEMBRANCE OF BILL, THIS CHRISTMAS OF 2009................I'm Spending Christmas With Jesus This Year..............I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below.With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear;For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear.But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring.For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart.But I am not so far away, we really aren't apart.I cannot tell you of the splendor or the peace inside this placeCan you imagine Christmas with our Savior, face to face?I will ask him to light your spirit as I tell him of your love.So then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.So be happy for me, dear ones, you know I hold you dear.And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.I sent you each a memory of my undying love.After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.For I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

TODAY I VISITED YESTERDAY, A POEM DEDICATED TO MY DECEASED LOVED ONES............A scrapbook page consisting of Bill, my two brother-in-laws, my dad and his brothers and sisters, all that have passed on.

One of Bill's passions was searching for his ancestors and finding out as much as he could about them. I am so glad that he was able to accomplish this before his death. This is a scrapbook page showing his lineage. The two generations above William Earl Forsythe and not showing are Thomas Harmon Forsythe and David Forsythe, who came to the United States the first time in 1770 from Ireland. He returned to Ireland two years later, and then back with his wife Margaret McGibbon. They settled at this time in Virginia. Later to be what is now West Virginia. Then later the migration to Kentucky.

Bill, being a bricklayer wanted to construct his own gravestone. In 1997, he decided to go ahead and do this. He made the columns and all of the concrete parts by hand,(about 18 separate pieces) by building forms and then pouring the concrete into them. He then constructed the body of brick and we then ordered three plaques with our names engraved on each. It is a triple stone, 9 foot in width. It has his name, my name and our mentally handicapped son included. It accomodates three graves. Bill passed away in 2006. This picture was made a year after his demise. The date of death has been inscribed on his personal plaque. By right clicking on your mouse and then view image, enlarges the picture so that it can be adequately seen.

In Memory of my husband, Bill January 1, 1936 to July 28, 2006 Someone Special…… A special person left this world three years ago today, Taking with him my heart, that has had a hard time healing. I know that I will never forget the time we had together. Why he had to go, Has been hard to understand. I know that when you gather the flowers You always leave the withered ones, and take the perfect rose, And that is what God has done. I realize he needed him more, but I really miss him so. I have not won the battle, my loss has just begun. He was my life and he is still with me everyday. His smile, his love, still shine in my heart, that will be with me all the way.

MEMORIES OF MY HUSBAND ON FATHERS DAY AND OUR 54TH ANNIVERSARY......Working with his old tools, gadgets, gardening and laying brick,....Riding on that old John Deere tractor,..You used so much....Outside under the hot East Texas blue sky..... You were always happy in most any place, It didn't take much. Always busy around our home, traveling, hunting and at rest with your bible in your hands.........Never a minute was wasted, You found plenty to do. Life to you, was what you made of it, simple things,.. constructing or building things, your garden, all types of fruit trees you planted, grafting. Deer and hog meat on the smoker, that you provided by hunting. It was worth millions to you......The stories you use to tell of your young life. As an adult, your memorable tales of your hunting trips You shared with your brothers,sons and.. later with your son-in-law. One of these I would now, love to hear....That special look on your face, your laugh, Your light blue eyes...These were your very on personal looks and expressions...These I wish I could now see.....Things you said can never be replaced. Some funny, some so very sincere..I use to wonder what you would come up with next..... Your complete surprise which you happily voiced, when we had our third child a girl, our sweet two boys already born, and after our dtr., another sweet son. You really thought you would have all sons, since your family consisted of six boys..........We had special days and special times.... From a quiet moment, to trips that were made, Visiting our children and grandchildren. Many trips tracing and finding all of our ancestors. Some just to special places. You loved all of these excursions. Each was very special at the time.........Not a great amount of money did we have, but you were happy with what we had. Family, home and God.....A special man, this husband of mine...Just one last touch, holding his hand,And hearing his voice, This I do crave........But now he is gone, No more for me to see. But I am sure in heaven, wherever there is something to be done, he can be found......Just look around, his handi-work and memories you will see, and above all,I know he, with our great grandson, baby Ashton, are waiting In heaven for all of their loved ones and me.
