William R. "Billy" Warmack
Dear Patsy, Eleanor and all the Warmack family. I was very sorry to hear of your loss. May God hold you in the palms of His hands and bring you peace and comfort during this very difficult time.
In the late 1800s, Henry Scott Holland Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral, London, wrote this wonderful tribute. I hope it gives you peace as you move through the next days and weeks.
•Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away to the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
•Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
•Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word it always was. Let my name be spoken without effort, without the trace of a shadow on it.
•Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.
•All is well.
We will miss uncle Billy and I know he has joined mom, buster and granddad in Glory. We pray our family in Tallahassee will know God's peace through this difficult time.
Lord, we pray your receive our loved one, Billy Warmack, into your presence, in Jesus Name. Amen.
This is to honor and give thanks for Billy Warmack's service to our country and the United States Marine Corps.
