The Broken Chain Author: Ron Tranmer We little knew that day, God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, In death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you, You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,The chain will link again. A Tow Truck Drivers PrayerThe tow operator stood and faced his Maker, which must always come to air. He hoped his chains were left behind and he hadn't brought them on to bare. "Step forward now, Driver how shall I deal with you?"
Have you always rendered aid? To your Maker, have you been true?
The tower, with dirt on his hands, said "No sir, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who drive tow trucks can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've taken people cars, because life is just that tough.
But I never took a penny, that wasn't mine to keep.
Though I logged a lot of hours when the bills just got too deep.
And I never passed by a cry for help though at times I had little to gain,
and sometimes, please forgive me, I could do little more than feel their pain.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here.
They only wanted me around in their worst of moments there.
But if you have a place for me, well...it need not be too grand.
I never expected or had too much so if you don't...I'll understand."
There was silence all around the room where the saints respectfully stood.
As the tow operator waited quietly, for the judgment of...bad or good.
"Step forward now, Driver, you've borne your burdens well.
Come tow on heaven streets, You've done your time in hell."
"Happy 55th Birthday Bemny! Six and a half years later Iand It still doesn't seem real that you aren't with us anymore. You are missed so much .. Bennys wife Jessica honored you at their wedding the other day it was a beautiful remembrance."
"every so often someone comes into your life that leaves a lasting impression for me, like so many people whos lives you touched, that person was you. you taught me how to get it done when it came to backing up a driver on a call. patience was never one of your strong points so I learned in a hurry that when you called you expected me to know what you needed to get your job done and who to call to make it happen. you gave me the tools I still use today and the confidence to do it right. and when it was all over you always remembered to call me and say thanks for the help. you made me feel like I was part of the team even with my small contribution. I still go to you when I'm not sure how to handle a problem I ask myself what would benny do? (wwb) and the answer usually comes to me right away. thank you benny for your friendship I am a better person for knowing you"
"It's been almost 6 years since you passed away at times it seems like it was yesterday. There are quite a few times that we caught ourselves saying " we have to call Dad".. Then we just look up to the sky and say it anyway... You would be so proud of all your kids..you are missed and thought of often..we have our memories of you to keep with us ...Till we meet again.
