My Dad
If you knew him you never forgot him because he was so kind and loving. He loved to laugh. He had so many friends. He was so loved by so many including friends and family. He was always there for us. He loved his children all the same, no favorites, he would do for any of us. I had many husbands but him and Terry were very close. He always got a kick out of this, he would come over and always go to the back yard first to see Terry(to see what he was messing with.) and later come in to see me and Terry would be behind him saying " Your daddy loves me more he came see me first" and ofcourse I would fuss and daddy would start laughing. He laugh till he cried at times. We had the privledge to have him in our home for almost two years when he got his leg amputated and it was such a joy spending that quality time with him. He loved spending time with his friends in the morning having coffee. I am missing him so much already but I know he is with Our Father In Heaven and there isn't no better place to be. You were the most loving man I know. We all felt your love. You made me laugh, cry and taught me the trade of Pappy & Son & Daughter. HA! HA! I am going thru your things and I laugh and cry all at the same time. I have never met a man so giving. Every person that spoke to me always said such a giving man, such a loyal man and we will miss him. You touched soooo many lives and they all came to bid you farewell but we will see you again. LOVE YA DADDY WITH ALL MY HEART. TILL WE MEET AGAIN. May the Lord welcome such a man in his arms.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
