God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain:
for the former things are passed away.
THROUGH ALL GENERATIONS
Loving Lord, You are the Lord of all time and space,
so I pray for my family through all generations,
those who have lived, those who are living, those who are yet to be born.
And I ask that You would touch us and heal us, Lord,
in all the ways You know we are most in need of healing.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all of us in Your care.
WE REMEMBER THEM by Sylvan Kamens & Rabbi Jack Riemer
At the rising sun and at its going down, we remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we remember them.
At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember them.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of the autumn, we remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as we remember them.
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember them.
When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember them.
When we have joy we crave to share, we remember them.
When we have achievements that are based on theirs, we remember them.
For as long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as we remember them.
DAY BY DAY
By St. Richard of Chichester
Thank You, Lord Jesus,
for all the benefits and blessings which You have given me,
for all the pains and insults which You have borne for me.
Merciful Friend, Brother and Redeemer,
may I know You more clearly, love You more dearly and follow You more nearly,
day by day.
By Dorothy Ann Husar Krosky 11/9/1979
When thoughts of loved ones suddenly appear
In the wheels of the mind, we'll hold them dear.
But we cannot dwell too long in this one place
For there is much in life that we must face.
We must carry on in the days of change
For life, another pattern, does arrange.
By Elaine Caldwell, Detroit Michigan
I unpacked some boxes from under the stairs
That were sitting all dusty, for so many years
Not knowing what treasures that I would uncover
Imagine my pleasure, when I did discover...
Some pictures and film, from thirty years past
And other mementos, that I had amassed
Looking at faces, a hard fact would dawn
that most of these people I knew, were now gone.
A sadness and quiet enveloped, that day
As I went through the photos and put them away
My family and loved ones so gentle and kind
Went on, but their presence is etched in my mind.
They will be remembered, this box will be found
Someday in the future when I'm not around
And grandkids will look at the photos and see
The picture and film that were taken, by me.
ROOTS AND WINGS
By Hodding Carter
There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children:
One of these is ROOTS; the other, WINGS.
THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE
By C. S. Lewis
Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of His roar, sorrows will be no more,
When He bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when He shakes His mane, we shall have spring again.
COINS ON A HEADSTONE
The deceased soldier's family knows that somebody stopped by, quite literally, to pay their respects. The tradition became popular in the USA during the Vietnam War.
- A penny means you visited.
- A nickel means that you and the soldier trained at boot camp together.
- A dime means you served with the soldier.
- A quarter means that you were there when the soldier was killed.
