I COME TO THE GARDEN ALONE

I COME TO THE GARDEN ALONE
WHILE THE DEW IS STILL ON THE ROSES
AND THE VOICE I HEAR,
FALLING ON MY EAR,
THE SON OF GOD DISCLOSES,
AND HE WALKES WITH ME,
AND HE TALKS WITH ME,
AND HE TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN,
and the joy we share
as we tarry there,
NONE OTHER HAS EVER KNOWN,
HE SPEAKS,AND THE SOUND OF HIS VOICE
IS SO SWEET THE BIRDS HUSH THEIR SINGING,
AND THE MELODY THAT HE GAVE TO ME
WITHIN MY HEART IS RINGING
AND HE WALKS WITH ME,
AND HE TALKS WITH ME,
AND HE TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN,
and the Joy we share
as we tarry there,
NONE OTHER HAS EVER KNOWN,

I'ED STAY IN THE GARDEN WITH HIM
THOUGH THE NIGHT AROUND ME BE FALLING,

BUT HE BIDS ME GO;
THROUGH THE VOICE OF WOE,
HIS VOICE TO ME IS CALLING,
AND HE WALKS WITH ME
AND HE TALKS WITH ME,
AND HE TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN,
AND THE JOY WE SHARE
as we tarry there there,
NONE OTHER HAS EVER KNOWN...

SEPTEMBER 11, 2010

Though the night around me be falling
But He bids me to go

Now I know what this means...

They are together

Hi Tom!
All the sadness, tears, absolute pain in my heart, ache to speak to you, obvious vacant places where you should be.... I recognize all this is not you. It's for me and my coping.

Reverence for all truly patriotic sites and sounds, pride in the sight of a "bike" ride-by, breath that is held when a single bike is heard or seen, pride and pain at the site of veterans among us, and that big smile you would flash because no one has the common since to cover a hole in the ocean floor! THAT is you, Tom. And I will always remember the precious time we had with you.

In my last dream of you when I ask "what are YOU smiling about?" After a slight pause you said "Why not?"Knowing God's plan for the Rowell family you're right, again.
See ya!!

To My Dear Son Tom,
It's been two years since you went home to be with the Lord. Still my heart feels like it is broken into a million tiny pieces. Some days when the storm clouds come & try to engulf me, our Lord & Savior reminds me of all the lives you touched, the ones you encouraged, & mentored & helped along the way. Also the love & respect you gave to everyone.
I remember the softness of your heart & some days, memories of you as a beautiful, sweet, little boy, always wanting to please, fill my thoughts.
I wish you could know how pleased & proud I am of the great, wonderful, man you became.
Lovingly, your Mom

P.S, The other day, Dad, said "I thought about (dreamed) Tom all night long". Thank you Lord

Tom, I can't begin to tell you just how I miss you and your whitty remarks. I feel closer to both you and Charley then my own brothers. I clearly miss you so very much and showing you my pictures was a blast. Thanks for getting me hooked on taking pictures of all the different places that I go to because without you coaching me, I wouldn't be doing what I do with the pictures. I will continue to Honor you until I die with pictures that I feel you would take if you were still here. I feel a real need to do this for you and shall continue to do it for you. I'm still working on the song for you and will get it just right for you. You have been a real brother to me and I love you for that. I'm proud to have known you for over 40 years now and will someday see you again. Remember to keep looking at my pictures and keep that envy meter going as I have of you. Love you, Brother. Ken

Tom,
I went to the beach yesterday and made footprints in the sand beside my footprints I wrote your name. Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of your passing. I keep you close to my heart and your memory so alive. I remember our friendship and all that we shared and all that I have learned from you. No one can ever take your place you will always & forever be with me and beside me as I listen to the whispers of the wind and as the ocean sings to me. "I will remember you" I thank you and the Lord for allowing our paths to cross and I know one day we shall me again*.

Tom,
Today is the 2nd anniversary of that fateful day
that changed the Rowell family forever. The loss
today, is as deep and profound as the day we lost you.
Our love and respect never waivers. We look forward to
the day we see you again in heaven.
With undying love from your sister (and on behalf of
the Rowells).....Til we meet again.
PS. I am keeping my word and watching over/& encouraging
John and God willing I will do so until we meet again.
