You are not forgotten loved one Nor will you ever be as long as life and memory last We will remember thee.....


..Train of Life.....

At birth, we boarded the train of life and met our parents, and we believed that they would always travel by our side. However, at some station, our parents would step down from the train, leaving us on life's journey alone.

As time goes by, some significant people will board the train: siblings, other children, friends, and even the love of our life.

Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we won't realize that they vacated their seats! This train ride has been a mixture of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

A successful journey consists of having a good relationship with all passengers, requiring that we give the best of ourselves. The mystery that prevails is that we do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. Thus, we must try to travel along the track of life in the best possible way -- loving, forgiving, giving, and sharing.

When the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty -- we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who continue to travel on the train of life.

Let's remember to thank our Creator for giving us life to participate in this journey.

I close by thanking you for being one of the passengers on my train!

What a wonderful long life your loved ones had, Psalm 90:10 says that the days of our years are 70 years, And if because of special mightiness they are 80 years. Special mightiness indeed. May the memories of the wonderful times you shared together bring a smile and joy in your heart.

Marc, Bruce and Family,
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you on the loss of your parents and grandparents. Uncle Warren and Aunt Joan were wonderful people, who had a love for each other that was a love story seldom heard of. Many of my childhood memories were one of Uncle Warren and Aunt Joan when they lived on Pawling Avenue in Troy. It is comforting to know that my mom, Dorothy, will reunite with a brother and sister-in-law she so loved.
Always keep your memories and love in your heart and your Mom and Dad will always be with you. God Bless and may the angels soar with Warren and Joan.
