A Poem In Memory Of Cecil Launius Family

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 here.
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 be stalwart and
courageous keep up your spirit.
Until the day comes.....
and we're together again.

I always like to add a meaningful bereavement
poem, if you have one, or can find one on the web,
that you would like added in honor of your ancestor.
I will be glad to add it. I place it at the top of the
memorial. If there is an obit, it goes under the poem.
Any census records or family history goes next.
Once we get the memorials completed,

Send all info thru edit, makes it much easier for the
person who created the memorial. There is a FAQ page
on the left side of your screen it can be found when you
click on Contributor Tools. Any questions, as a long
time member, I have been on here a little more than a
year, and would try to answer any questions. I had to
at the beginning. There is no reason to stumbe around
in the dark, so to speak.

I will be glad to transfer your immediate
loved ones that I have made to your care.
If you want them transferred, I will continue to
manage and maintain them. Let me know asap regarding
all of the above remarks.
I do ask that when I transfer a memorial, it is not deleted and another one made it its place. Also any information
that you wish to add, please do it below the
poem and information that you have previously given me.
There are members on here who will not transfer memorial
to relatives, if you haven't yet, read the message on my
public page. Any questions, please ask.
Requests and suggestions can take, sometimes up to 30 days,
so don't think you have been forgotten, I would always
check back after 30 days, things happen.

PS When I opened up this memorial saw the photos,
and the woman sitting on the couch, I thought what
is my mother doing sitting with that man, but I
looked really closely and could see that was not her
after all.

buried in this cemetery, need photo
