Dearest Family & Friends of Gatewood Galbraith,
The great poet laureate Robert Frost pined a poem titled, "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" and the opening goes like this, "Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow." Gatewood always pressed on, and marched on he never stopped to watch the woods of progress fill up with snow because the proof was in his labor on behalf of God and his fellow man. He pressed on and pressed forward for his family, his friends and the voiceless. Regretting only, I am sure, to not stop and catch his breath. But clearly the God of all Heaven and Earth called to Gatewood at a time in his life and said, "Gate its time to take a breath...time to stop for a bit and take a well earned rest my good and faithful servant, come lets rest and watch the snow, the fruits of your labor, in the woods of progress in My Name and in the name of my people--your family, your friends, and the voiceless fill to over flowing..." Frost concludes his epic poem with this line, and for me it sums Gatewood up to a tee, "The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep." Sleep dear friend and brother of man, sleep and watch the woods of progress, your wooods of progress in God's Name, fill up with snow, Amen and Amen!
