It was one year ago today that I lost my father, the most loving, caring man that ever lived. His life touched so many people and he is dearly missed. I found this letter and I believe he would be saying all these things to us if he could:
To My Dearest Family:
Somethings I'd like to say
but first of all to let you know
that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above
where there's no more tears
or sadness there
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 so bady
as part of My Big Plan
there's so much that we have to do
to help our mortal man
Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do
and foremost on that list of mine
is to watch and care for you
And I will be beside you
every day and week and year
and when you're sad
I'm standing there
to wipe away the tear
And when you lie in bed at night
the days 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're 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
of 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're
I am closer to you now
than I ever was before
And to my very many friends
trust God knows what is best
I'm still not far away from you
I'm just beyond the crest
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb
but together we can do it
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
so the World will give to you
If you can help somebody
who is in sorrow or in pain
then you can say to God at night
my day was not in vain
And now I am contented
that my life it was worthwhile
knowing as i passed along the way
I made somebody smile
So if you meet somebody
who is down and feeling low
just lend a hand to pick him up
as on your way you go
When you are 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 you feel the gentle breeze
or the wind upon your face
that's me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace
And when it's time for you to go
from that body to be free
remember you're not going
you are coming here to me
And I will always love you
from that land way up above
Will be in touch again soon
P.S. God sends His Love

I love you Dad......

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

I have been friends with Debbie, for nearly nine years, and met Mr. Belt through our friendship. I know he loved his family very dearly, and also loved to serve THE LORD, in his daily life. He was a kind and caring man, and will be missed by many. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire family.

When I met Jim , he was allready ill
I did not have a chance to know him
when he was'nt sick. They said his
mind was sick and did not work right.
That may be so, but I tell you one
thing, there was'nt any thing wrong
with his heart. When Jim;s mind
was'nt up to par, his heart took
over, what I mean is, His heart
took over his action's. Now they came from his heart. I never met a man more Gentle,Easy going,Kind, or more giving.
Even when his mind was mixed up
His heart took over. you know, I
have heard GOD knows our heart
And HE will tell Jim, Job well Done
His heart turned out to be made of Gold. I will miss you Jim, GOD Bless.

When the Good Lord above took our wonderful father up to Heaven the gates were opened wide with the loving arms of his own parents and his 9 brothers and sisters all there to welcome him home. Heaven is even more beautiful now with Dad there, he was a one of a kind Dad and we were all so very, very blessed to have him for all those years. We love you Dad, so very much and you will never leave our hearts. Someday we will all be together again.

Doris and Family,
So sorry to hear about your loss. At least Jim is not suffering in pain anymore and that he is in a better place in heaven looking down upon you everyday. Try to keep your spirits up, as one day we all will meet in heaven
