Judith, it was so nice to read your message for Dad and family. We still have reunions but being together at the cemetery reunions are special memories. If you are on Facebook the family "Caldwell Cousins" have a page. Luv Jamie

I was looking for the obituary of aunt marcile / which is just no where just a name and date , when up popped your father my most wonderful kind uncle , I remember when we were possibly 10 and up going to the old reunions in the cemetery we always waited for uncle Stanford's girls and uncle Carlton's kids , William and I , Jamie was like my friend cousin , times were so great back then , some of us have drifted so far apart and I don't know why exactly , I often wonder what happens , why are we still not so close when we grow up ? Your father always had the biggest smile hug and just a warm hello that made me feel special your mother is also a very kind person . I love all of you . Camp and I have lost our fathers at a young age then our brothers and then our mothers all in the same order . I've always been talking about you girls and your father thru my life truly a good family . I will close now , god bless your lives .now your father is with some of the best people of all in our family it's me Anna Ruth's Perkins daughter Judith jones Pacheco

Hello Dad, It's been two years since my heart had a piece removed on Nov 4, 2012. Thinking of you daily. Just to let you know we have a Young Marine Private in the family and he knows Pappy is proud. We miss you more today than the day God took you home. Thank you for wrapping your arms around us during our horrible accident on 7/7/2014, we definetly felt your presence. Your Family, Connie Smith

A Golden Heart stopped beating and hard working hands at rest. A year ago Nov 4,2013, God saw you grow weary and tired, on wings of Angels he took you home to the sky so high. I cried when you passed away. I cry today. Although I Love you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. God broke my heart to prove to me he only takes the best.

We Love you and miss you Dad,
Woody and Connie Smith

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.
