In Loving memory of Lionel Calanche Sr. 3/7/49 - 9/16/08 It has been 4 yrs. since your passing I miss you dearly every single day. I know you are in a better place especially with our son. I love you very much as all of our daughters, son and all of our grand children. They send you hugs and kisses. Hon. Remember we will all be together some day God willing your loving wife Irene. To the man who has inspired us all to love and care for the needs of others: It has been long since your presence has been seen, since your touch felt, and your voice heard. Years have passed since your departing and we have long seeked to fill the emptiness that your passing has bestowed upon us. It is the least to say that it has not been easy, as time passed we have learned to live with your lack of presence, though we have not in the least bit forgotten you, nor has the puissant love we contained faded. Your memory still fills our mind and occupies our soul, your laugh can still be heard and runs through our ears as a sweet melody, your voice is greater than that of Beethoven's or Mozart's created art- it is a beautifully pure creation that is home to us when we are lost. As the sun rises and sets with each passing day, you are remembered. And remembered you will be, for the rest of eternity, our love will never dull in color and will continue to illuminate the heavens that are far beyond our reach. Your are in God's hands now, his beloved angel, his precious jewel, you are his light that fills darkness, just as you are ours. You are deeply missed and forever loved. May your legacy continue on for years to come, you will be forever remembered.
