Along the Road
I walked a mile with Pleasure
She chattered all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow
And ne'er a word said she;
But oh, the things I learned from her
When Sorrow walked with me.

Robert Browning Hamilton


There are things that:
we don't want to happen but have to accept,
things we don't want to know but have to learn,
and people we can't live without but have to let go.

Gone but never forgotten
Mom you are Loved Forever and a day Bobbi

2 Corinthans 5:8 "... Absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."

===== Neil B John 3:16

Always a silent hurt,
many a silent tear,
but always a beautiful memory
of one we loved so dear.

God gave us strength to bear it,
and courage to take the blow,
but what it meant to lose you one will ever know.

Love never divides it only multiplies…

Time for me to go now, I won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky. In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Time for me to leave you, I won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky. In the evening sunset, when all the world is through, Just look for me and love me, and I'll be close to you.

It won't be forever, the day will come and then we meet again and play in the sun

Time for us to part now, we won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky. Every waking moment, and all your whole life through Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.



The Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.

Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.

Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.

Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.

Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.
