My most heart felt sympathy, condolences and love to Maxie's children - Michelle, Mark,Brian, Randy and Chad - - His precious grandchildren - Although I've never met any of you - I know you through your dad - my first cousin. I so remember growing up with him and all the good times we had! My heart and soul goes out to his sisters and brother - Betty Ruth, Sarah Jean, Linda Faye, Delma Louise and Paul.
Although we sometimes expect the inevitable - we're never prepared for the reality.
Maxie suffered too much - far too long and is now resting in the arms of Jesus.
I'm certain that he is looking down on all of you and saying:
Always Remember My Love For You!
"It is now my time to "Go Home" - always remember that I did not die
Instead know that I am right above watching over you - so please don't cry.
If you do - know that I will comfort you from my "Home" above
Just like I did while on earth - you will feel the gentle touch of my love.
It is only our physical body that passes away - not our Spirit - it survives
through all of Eternity and guides us every step of the way.
Remember you are all God's Children and you need to learn from Him
That's why you'll live hard lessons - it strengthens your Spirit through the grim.
Let God help you grow in your own personal Spirituality so you can become
a better self and know true Reality.
Always listen to your inner self - your sub conscious voice - it is your Spirit Guide
trying so hard to lead you to more - keeping you from harms way and guiding you to open the right door.
Enrich your life for the betterment of all man kind - treat others the way you
want to be treated - in doing so - you'll sparkle like a new dime.
Love, Live, Laugh, and Give to fulfill your true potential in life - because -
We will all be together again in Spirit without the daily strife.
Celebrate my life, my joys, my honor and please forget my past sorrows -
From my Home Above I will be with you for all your tomorrows.
Know that I will always Love You and again - don't cry for me but if you do -
You can count on me being right there, hugging and comforting you!"
I so very much wish that I could be there to give you my personal hug of love and comfort - circumstances prevent me from doing so.
I light this candle for all of you with a prayer that God will brighten your path and guide you through the dark days ahead! I love you all so very much!
