~TO THE DEBERRY FAMILY~
Always Remember...
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

The following poem has always provided comfort for me and my family during difficult times...It is entitled:

~The Plan of the Master Weaver~
It reads as follows........
Our lives are but fine weavings that God and we prepare, Each life becomes a fabric planned and fashioned in His care.

We may not always see just how the weavings intertwine, But we must trust the Master's hand and follow His design...

For He can view the pattern upon the upper side, While we must look from underneath and trust His hand to guide.

Sometimes a strand of sorrow is added to His plan, And though it's difficult for us, we still must understand...

That it's He who fills the shuttle, it's He who knows what's best, So we must weave in patience and leave to Him the rest.

Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly... Shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.. The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver's skillful hand As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.

~ Author Unknown ~

As you return to your daily routine..always remember that "memory" is one gift from GOD that "death" does not destroy! Cherish your memories of LOIS...Her spirit will live with you forever!
Trust in the ALMIGHTY GOD with all of your heart, mind, body, and soul! GOD IS YOUR REDEEMER, YOUR PROVIDER, YOUR PROTECTOR, YOUR DELIVERER, YOUR TOWER OF STRENGTH!
May the Peace of the LORD surround all of you now and forever!

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.
