Barbara Ann Harrison was the most beautiful woman that I have ever known. She was my grandma. She lost her life in a car accident on July 25, 2003 just one month to the day that we lost my little brother in a car accident. She was my rock, my heart, and part of my soul and I miss her more than I ever thought I could miss someone. She was strong, wise, and kind. She loved her family, George Strait,Elvis country music, ice cream, and her Lord. She was the rock of our family, the heart all. Everything in my life that I have ever accomplished was with her unyeilding love and support. There are so many things I want to tell her. So many things I wish she could see. I remember her telling me, when we lost my brother, the sweetest words that she could think of to ease my pain. "He is not in this body anymore. He is in Heaven. He is in no pain. He knew you loved him more than anything. Hindsight is 20/20, you couldn't have known this was going to happen. He is with God now. It will be alright" I repeated this words a month later to myself, knowing that this beautiful woman, this angel was with God in Paradise. These words helped me get through that terrible time and even though she wasn't there, once again she was my rock, my angel. She will always be my angel in Heaven watching over me. Grandma, I love you more than all of the stars in the sky. Always. Love, your Tambo!

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see;

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all 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;

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,

that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,

and said my place was ready in heaven far above,

and that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,

for all life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for and so much yet to do,

it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for awhile,

I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized that this could never be,

for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things that I'd miss come tomorrow,

I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity and all I've promised you".

Today for life on earth is past but here it starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,

and since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful, so trusting, and so true.

Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free.

So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?

So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,

for every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
