ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in memory of my father. He was a husband, grandfather great grandfather, gg grandfather, Arthur Bruce Scholes SR, 57, born on January 22, 1937 and passed away on March 5, 1994. You are forever missed.

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 in 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 son, My 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."

Happy birthday 1 week late bepa, you guessed it im cleaning out my email. I've never posted on here b4, this stuff is hard to process. No matter how long it's been or how old u are. I think about you every day. What would bepa do if he seen today's cell phones..... what would bepa do if he seen how fast the internet was.....what would bepa do if seen the online poker.... just what would bepa do? Runs across my mind constantly. I use to stick to blue carnations always until I found u were color blind, nice one u pulled on me! All these years. So now u see every flower I grow is blue ur favorite color. Wink wink. Real blue flowers are hard to come by. Maybe I will try & create my own. You can do that now. Things you would be amazed with. Well bepa until next time, thinking about you always have a wonderful day, love you always.

When Great Trees FallBy Maya Angelou More Maya Angelou

When great trees fall,
rocks on distant hills shudder,
lions hunker down
in tall grasses,
and even elephants
lumber after safety.

When great trees fall
in forests,
small things recoil into silence,
their senses
eroded beyond fear.

When great souls die,
the air around us becomes
light, rare, sterile.
We breathe, briefly.
Our eyes, briefly,
see with
a hurtful clarity.
Our memory, suddenly sharpened,
examines,
gnaws on kind words
unsaid,
promised walks
never taken.

Great souls die and
our reality, bound to
them, takes leave of us.
Our souls,
dependent upon their
nurture,
now shrink, wizened.
Our minds, formed
and informed by their
radiance,
fall away.
We are not so much maddened
as reduced to the unutterable ignorance
of dark, cold
caves.

And when great souls die,
after a period peace blooms,
slowly and always
irregularly. Spaces fill
with a kind of
soothing electric vibration.
Our senses, restored, never
to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.
We can be. Be and be
better. For they existed.
