 When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you for a little while please do not grieve and shed wild tears and hug your sorrow to you through the years but start out bravely with a gallant smile; and for my sake and in my name live on and do all things the same, feed not your loneliness on empty days, but fill each waking hour in useful ways, reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer and I in turn will comfort you and hold you near; and never, never be afraid to die, for I am waiting for you in the sky!

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed He was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from His life. For each scene He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonging to Him and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of His life flashed before Him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of His life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of His life.

This really bothered Him and He questioned the LORD about it. LORD you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.

The LORD replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.

 Safely Home
I am home in heaven, dear ones; oh, so happy and so bright! There is a perfect joy and beauty in the everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, safely home in heaven at last. There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand, do it now, while life remaineth– you shall rest in God’s own land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you home; oh, the rapture of that meeting oh, the joy to see you come!

If I am ever called to leave you, unexpectedly
Please take from me these parting thoughts to frame my legacy
When you remember me tomorrow, I pray you'll recall
A happy soul, who loved his family, loved his work as well
Please recollect a man who loved the chance to lend a hand
To save a life or property from some untimely end
Someone who heard the public call to safeguard streets and homes
Deliver breath to silent lungs to quench the hostile flames
But when you ponder how I came to make my final stand
Don't make me more than what I am - a decent caring man
Don't make me more in death than I, in life have ever been
Remember simply, one who served his god and fellow men


In Loving Memory

Until we meet Again


A light from our lives has gone, A voice we loved is still

A place is vacant within our hearts, Which never can be filled.

A bouquet of beautiful memories , Sprayed with a million tears.

I wish go could have spared you , If just for a few more years 

We hold you close within our hearts ,and there you will remain. 

To walk with us through out our lives 

Until we meet again.

So rest in peace dear loved one, And thanks for all you've done.

We pray that god has given you , The Crown you've truly won.

Your vacant place no one can fill

We miss you now and always will.
