For James...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

Your loved one served his country well in World War II, he came home and made his mark on stage and screen-sharing his talent with so many people.
I am sorry for your loss.
I will always remember him as the Grandfather in "Where the Red Fern Grows." He made every movie and television appearance better with his amazing acting abilities.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Whitmore, you will be missed.

May it fall upon your spirit so that the
little flowers may spring up and shed
their sweetness in the air.

And may the blessing of the great
rains be on you.

May they beat upon your spirit and
wash it fair and clean and leave there
many a shining pool where the blue
heaven shines reflected in sometimes
a star.

May the blessing of the earth be
upon you.

May the earth rest easy over you
when at last you lie out under it.

May it rest so lightly over you that
your soul may be quickly through it
and on its way to God.

Dear Whitmore Family,
I would like to express my sincere condolences regarding the passing of this gentle soul (Mr. James Whitmore). I had the great honor of meeting Mr. Whitmore at a Wilson Farms store in Buffalo, New York, were I worked back in the early 1990's. He was in search of a nearby hotel at the time after a long day of travel. I remember him asking for directions. I was shaking because Mr. Whitmore whom I admired through his movies was standing before me. It was so hard for me to speak due to the excitment I felt. When I finally did speak all I could do was stumble through my words. After directions were given he kindly said thank you, gave me a warm smile and walk out of the store. I would go on to never forget that brief moment. Mr. Whitmore I thank you for all you have done in your lifetime here on earth. You are in the arms of our Lord, and somehow I know heaven has become an even brighter place. I ask the Lord to give strength to the Whitmore Family for (They) hold you close together as one. Be not afraid, for you are never alone. The Angel walk with you always. God Bless...Love Sharon O'Connor
February 07, 2009
James will be missed very much. I loved to watch his movies. Just watching him showed he was a very caring person. His faced showed it.
