To the Callahan Family,
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Angels live forever far beyond our days on earth,and every soul receives an angel guardian at birth. Invisible,these angels never leave us, day or night. They know our fears and whisper,"things are going to be all right". They give us strength and purpose,keep our hope and courage strong, they fill our minds with wisdom and our spirits with a song.. And when the time in this world comes to reach our journey's end, our angel walks beside us like a kind, familiar friend. And as we leave behind the only place we've ever known, we see our angel's smile at last and hear "You're home...you're home." May you find comfort in knowing that Brian has been guided home. With much prayers and love. Leslie and Bill

Dear Mo, Stu and family,
There is so little we can say ... So little we can do ... When God has called a loved one home ... Who means so much to you ... When smiling eyes are closed in sleep ... According to God's will ... And that dear voice you loved to hear ... Has suddenly gown still ... But there are those who think of you ... And those who always care ... And who would help your heart to lift ... The burden you must bear ... And so this gentle message is ... Sincerely meant to be ... A prayerful thought of fond regard ... And heartfelt sympathy.
Love, Mary Lou LaBarge

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.
Ruth Ann Mahaffey (author)
Mo and family, we are so sorry for your unimaginable loss. Brian is a beautiful soul that will live on in all who loved him. You are in our thoughts and prayers constantly.
