"So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here, in your heart."

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn’t do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?”"

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,
He said, “This is eternity,
And all I’ve promised you.
Today your life on earth is past
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day’s the same way,
There’s no longing for the past."

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven’s gates
I felt so much at home"

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"The good ones and the bad,
The thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday
Just even for a while,
I’d say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized"

This tribute was added by Chris Barr on 9th November 2013

"Happy Birthday Grandpa, I miss you so much and wish i could spend one more day with you, I went fishing yesterday and the only fish i caught was for you. The scenery was beautiful and the lake was calm. I wish you could have been out there with me. I love you"

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"And that I’d have to leave behind
All those dearly I love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I’d always thought,
I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,"

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That and angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above"

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,"

This tribute was added by Lynn Garner on 9th November 2013

"Happy Birthday Daddy. I think of you often and miss you every day...I miss talking to you on Sundays and laughing together. I love you with all my heart. there's a special poem from the book, "Proof of Heaven," It'll take several tribute entries to post all of it

When tomorrow starts without me, And I’m not there to see,"

"Since I can remember Herb was always part of our annual visits to Ca. I remember his fish fries, him tinkering in his garage, drink a cold one, and swapping stories with my dad and Uncle Ken. Then I was lucky enough to call his daughter Aunt MaryAnn when she married my Uncle Jim.  When he moved, he was missed. And when he came back I was excited to have my kids get to know him too!"

"Herb will be sadly missed by me and many others as well.  We shared a bond that cannot be replaced.  We shared a lot of great moments together fishing the river as well as sharing each others company.  He was more like a father figure to me as well as a great uncle.  He was a great asset to the masonic lodge #19 where it was my pleasure to install him.  Herb I will always miss you."

Him and his sister are togather again and I am sure they are happier. God Blessing to all to in"

Godliness with great contentment is great gain.  (Selected)"
