My Observations of Time Written By: Gene Sloan If Today was Yesterday’s Tomorrow --And --Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday Then Today is the Past of the Future --And -- Today is the Future of the Past Since the living always know that there is a Today -- and --Not all of us had a Yesterday And not all of us will have a Tomorrow Then ~ Today we should say “I Love You” and “I’m Sorry” to the Loved Ones in our lives and the people that we have journeyed together , this road of Life. Life is too short for arguments, or to air differences in opinions or to try to change loved ones views on matters that don’t mean anything to anyone and will not alter life as we all know it Respect the differences in mankind, Embrace and rejoice in the similarities and never speak wrong against the people , friends or family that help you get through each day of your life. Failure to comply to the above, will result in sadness, loneliness, heart ache, missed opportunities and future memories. I have seen in my life, the independence of loved young parents as well as the dependency of loved old parents I have seen in my life, the dependency of young loved children to loving elders and the independency of young children to loved elders where care transfers to each. Real family Love is not negotiable, it is not for sale, nor can it be revoked or resolved for any reason. You can dislike the views or comments of family members, but you can never hate that family member, that you truly love, regardless of the circumstance. Get everyone you love through life, no matter what...
"I miss you every day, Baby Blue Jeans. You always had a way to create happiness for me. How I miss your impersonations of the Cowardly Lion and Felix The Cat. Just remembering makes me laugh. I know that you are with us. We just can't see you. I hear you though! Save a piece of Sanders caramel cake for me up there. I know you are stealing forkfuls from the plates of the Saints. Just thinking of you with your cake fork cracks me up."

"Happy Birthday Dad... I found myself so many times today wondering what things would be like today if you we're still here with us. Celebrating your 60 years, continuing with our family birthday traditions and all the memories that would have been made these past five years. The pain of you being gone stings so much more when I think of how you would of loved your 2 grandsons so much and what an amazing grandfather you would of been to them. I know though, that you have left me with all the tools I need to raise them with to have good integrity, morals, and the kind of character that makes people just want to be around you more. Thank you for always being there for me, even when I was difficult,never giving up, and making sure you could get through to me everything YOU KNEW you needed me to know. I couldn't of asked for a better teacher, friend and father. I love you."
