Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going." John 14:1 - 4

Sorry for your loss

Carla V., CJ and I were saddened to hear of your dear loss. The human side of us is never ready to let our love ones go because we will physically miss having them with us. I've read your grandmother's obituary and she has truly accomplished quite a bit! She knew God's purpose for her and has earned her reward. Now she's with Jesus Christ and all the other saints. I can tell that you've learned a lot from her and maybe some of the teaching came through your mom, but originated through her (smile). She will always be with you in your heart and continue to think of all the good things she taught you and fun times you had together. Those are precious memories. CJ and I have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

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 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're coming here to me.

Your Family has my deepest sympathies! I will miss her beautiful smile and cutest little laugh that I remember when I was a child. Some of the the best memories are at Shiloh. I love you all! I know that my Dad is up in Heaven standing on the door waiting to open it for her to welcome her in!

I worked with Annie some 30 years ago at Hamot. She was always such a joy! What a wonderful woman.

TO THE NORTON FAMILIES...AUNT ANNIE WAS SUCH A SWEET WOMAN AND A SWEET SPIRIT. I ALWAYS ENJOYED SEEING HER. SHE WOULD ASK ABOUT MY PARENTS ALL THE TIME.. I WAS ALWAYS INSPIRED BY HER LOVE FOR HER KIDS AND GRANDKIDS...ESPECIALLY UNCLE WILLIE T.!! SHE WAS AN USHER THAT DID HER JOB WELL..NOW SHE WILL BE DOOR KEEPER IN HEAVEN..I KNOW SHE WILL HEAR "WELL DONE THY FAITHFUL SERVANT"...RIP...2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
