"Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish all others peace on their journey. When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life. When the paths are separated, return to the wholeness of yourself, give thanks for the footprints left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own."

Sandy's INTRODUCTION
In the spring of 2010, I became interested in finding out more about my father's family. My g-g-g-g grandfather, John P Lyle, settled in Paulding Co, Georgia, sometime before 1840. It is thought that he received land in the 1832 land lottery of the Cherokee lands. After working on the memorials of my immediate LYLE family members, I started looking for the graves in my extended families. I spend the majority of my time in Paulding County and the counties that surround Paulding. I have found this to be a very rewarding way to fill in some of those extra hours I have as a retiree.
I also want to acknowledge and give credit to my late brother, Thomas Edward 'CC' Lyle, and to my 1st cousin once removed, Dianne Jean 'Dolly' Eberhardt. I thank them for allowing me to use their genealogy research information in several of my FAG memorials.

A BROKEN HEART
How do I mend a broken heart?
My entire world has fallen apart.
How do I find hope in a brand new day,
when the one I love has gone away?
My mind overflows with memories of you,
of all that we've shared, all that we knew.
I long for your touch and your warm embrace,
the look in your eyes, the smile on your face.
My dreams are filled with your soft gentle kiss.
I wake and cry for all that I miss.
How do I mend a broken heart,
when my one true love and I are apart?
My heart knows to love only you, it won't let go, what do I do?
Our moments together were precious and few,
but I cherished them all more than you knew.
I love you, my angel, and always will.
I loved you then and I love you STILL.
____________ೋღ☃ღೋ____________
A LOVE THAT IS FOREVER
We started with young love,
Amazed at how far that went.
I valued the time we had,
The good and bad moments spent.

Weathered through the storms,
Beat all kinds of odds.
I promise to keep your love with me,
Even when your spirit sits with God.

I love you forever,
A promise we both made.
Now that you're gone and I'm here,
I'll keep your love for the rest of my days.

Forever is forever,
Even if I'm here alone.
Your love reigns in my heart,
Even though you're really gone.

I love you.

TEARS ON MY PILLOW
Tears on my pillow,
I can't count how many I've cried.
I feel so awfully hollow,
Almost like it's me that died.

How long will I feel so empty,
Will this heartache ever end?
How long will I have to wait,
Until we meet in Heaven, my friend?
____________ೋღ☃ღೋ____________
I THOUGHT WE HAD MORE TIME
I thought we had more time,
But I know now I was wrong.

If I could see you one more time,
See your much-loved face.
If only I could tell you thanks
And feel your sweet embrace.

I can say I love you in my heart,
But it's just not the same.

St. Jude's DON'T QUIT Prayer
'Don't Quit'
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When you're feeling low and the stress is high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When worries are getting you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When we might have won had we stuck it out,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow,

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the (God's hidden gift in the) clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight (So trust in the Lord) when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst (It's when things go wrong) that you must not quit!

SONG- I Only Want To Be With You by Dusty Springfield
I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
'Cause you started something, oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
It happens to be true, I only want to be with you
It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Well, look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It's crazy but it's true, I only want to be with you
You stopped and smiled at me
Asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now, listen, honey, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something, oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only want to be with you
Oh, you stopped and you smiled at me
Asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now, listen, honey, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something, oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only want to be with you
Oh, you stopped and you smiled at me
Asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
I didn't stand a chance
Now hear me darling, I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you started something, oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met you've had a hold on me
No matter what you do, I only want to be with you
I said, no matter, no matter what you do
I only want to be with you

In November 2021, I was still sorting through my mother's things, and found this prayer on the back of an Advent Penance Service Bulletin from her church.
"THE LIVING SPIRIT"
Lord,
I am often filled with fear when I
think of the future.
I am haunted by past mistakes and
hurts.
afraid of what the future might hold
and I feel paralyzed.
I surrender it all to you now
I ask you to heal all that is
wounded in
me and trust you to take care of all I
worry about.
You are the one
who makes all things new.
With you I go forward,
securely and joyfully,
into freedom.
Amen

"THOSE WE MISS"
By: Mitch Albom

It seems the older we get, the more holidays and milestones are dimmed by those no longer present. How many people this weekend were saying, "This is the first Christmas without Mom," or "Grandpa would have loved the tree this year."
COVID has made it worse. Across the world, parents were unexpectedly missing from the holidays, uncles and aunts did not deliver their annual cooking specialties, sons and daughters were absent from the gift-wrapping and present-opening.
The holidays are all about bringing us together. But what about those who are gone? Each holiday or milestone that passes without a loved one present only confirms their absence.
This can not only leave you feeling sad, but guilty. It seems unfair that we should be gaining years while those who have died are not.
The new COVID variant, omicron, is reportedly far more contagious — though likely less potent — than the delta variant.
The need for human connection is greater than scientists can estimate. The agony of being without those we love can overwhelm us, and loneliness is an affliction every bit as powerful as a virus.
So after a year of giving up on traditions and milestones (2020), people are saying, "not anymore."
This is a human truth: we want to be with each other. We want to laugh together, cry together, hug together. We want it for now and we want to savor it for the future, when we can only smile through tears and tell stories of those who are gone and how much we wish they were still here.

Remembering Lost Love
Posted May 3, 2022
Memories continue the bonds we shared with someone we loved and lost.
https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/intense-emotions-and-strong-feelings/202205/remembering-lost-love
(This post is excerpted in part from the book, Grief Isn't Something to Get Over: Finding a Home for Memories and Emotions After Losing a Loved One.)

A continuing bond can trap some people in past experiences with former romantic interests or with loved ones who have died.
We may become lost if the love we once held becomes a distant memory. The awareness that someone is missing outside of our being is difficult to reconcile with their presence within us, especially if their presence and the specialness of a relationship with them contributed to our identity. When we are lost in response to a loss, we may not know which way to go, where to turn, or what to do.
Relationships that end are painful, but our memories do not let us forget those who impacted our lives. When actual death ends the boundary of someone's life, it does not end a relationship. There is a healthy aspect to maintaining a bond with the deceased, and the severing of bonds may not be necessary. Continued bonds can offer comfort, safety, and support, both during the time of transition and afterward. If we can use our memories to restore a lost connection, then imagining the person is still here with us in some way can be a pillar of support and a source of comfort.
An ongoing internal relationship to the image of the deceased is an important aspect of mourning and a normal part of healthy adaptation. Calling up memories of someone as a source of hope or protection can create a sense of stability, a feeling that they are still here with us. An ongoing inner relationship with a lost loved one may represent our best efforts. Thus, through our memories, we tend to hang on when love is lost.
____________ೋღ☃ღೋ____________
GRIEF Can REWIRE Your BRAIN
Being a human can be a wonderful thing. We're social creatures, craving strong bonds with family and friends. Those relationships can be the most rewarding parts of life.

But having strong relationships also means the possibility of experiencing loss. Grief is one of the hardest things people go through in life. Those who have lost a loved one know the feeling of overwhelming sadness and heartache that seems to well up from the very depths of the body.

To understand why we feel the way we do when we grieve, the logical place to turn is to the source of our emotions: the brain.
