Strong and steady, thundering by,
waiting for me to be by your side.
That day will long, old friend.
Till we meet in heaven, you've been "the best." Ride on Cowboy.....

A man knocked at the Heavenly Gate,
his face was scarred and old.
He stood before the man of fate,
for admission to the fold.
"What have you done" St. Peter asked,
"To gain admission here?"
"I've been a cowboy, Sir" he said,
for many and many a year".
The Pearly Gates swung open wide,
as St. Peter touched the bell.
"Come in and choose your harp" he said,
"You've had your share

I just thought I’d say
I love you and goodbye
We will miss you dearly
I promise I won’t cry.

I will never forget our talks
Conversations on the phone
How happy you were to see ..........

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them". -- Leo Tolstoy (1828

Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight

The Bull Rider's Prayer

As I live the Cowboy Way, 
Protection is what I pray, 
I don't know my Fate, 
Outside of the gate.

If my ride sees trouble,
Send Angels on the double,
For in you the Lord I rest, 
Let my life pass your test.

By pure grace I am saved,
Lord, ride with me,

That's the Cowboy Way,
And what bull riders pray.

Our thoughts are with you. So sorry to hear of your loss.

His reflection he'll see in the mirror
And the fact is no more can he ride
His last days will be as a dreamer
In the shadows of memories gone by

God will lead you up to heaven
And he will ride at your side
So once again, saddle up Cowboy
It's time for that final ride.

Do not weep for me
just because my earthly body you cannot see
though the skin and flesh may be gone
Look around, you'll feel me,
My soul lives on!

I think I’ll journey out some day to wondrous lands afar,
Or even chart a journey to a distant blazing star.
But rest assured that when my journey begs to take its cue,
Always know that when I go, this journey takes you too
Posted by Jamie Green on February 17, 2012
though your journey may be done
you are not gone
though we may be late
we will meet you at the pearly gates
forever we shall always be
at home looking over thy family

Farewell, dear voyageur - the river winds and turns;
The cadence of your song wafts near to me,
And now you know the thing that all men learn:
There is no death - there's immortality.
Posted by Steve Dalton on February 16, 2012
Love is stronger than death even though
it can't stop death from happening,
but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love.
It can't take away our memories either.
In the end, life is stronger than death.

Let me be easy on the man that's down;
      Let me be square and generous with all.
    I'm careless sometimes, Lord, when I'm in town,
      But never let 'em say I'm mean or small!
    Make me as big and open as the plains,
      As honest as the hawse between my knees,
    Clean as the wind that blows behind the rains,
      Free as the hawk

Oh the last goodbye’s the hardest one to say.
This is where the cowboy rides away.

"When we truly love it is never lost
For it is only after death that the
Depth of the bond is truly felt and
Our love one becomes more a part
Of us than was possible in life"
Posted by George S on February 16, 2012
Sometimes it's hard to understand the drift of things. This was a good boy. He'd have been a good man. He didn't get his chance. Death can come for ya any place, any time. It's never welcomed. The only soulist is knowing he is in a better place than this world could ever be!
Posted by J N Thrash on February 16, 2012
Death is a brief separation
A temporary pain
Grieve not my dear
The sun will shine again
Death separates our bodies
But our hearts remain the same
And the memories of our love
Will soothe away your pain
And carry you over
Until we meet again.

For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord

And I bless the day I met you
And I thank God that He let you
Lay beside me for a moment that lives on
And the good news is I'm better
For the time we spent together
And the bad news is you're gone

When a cowboy rides into the sunset
All he owns is tears and regrets
A buckle or two, his chaps, and vests
A broken heart in a tangled mess
And the memory of the one he left behind
When a cowboy rides

A death in the family leaves a void that cannot be filled. No one can ever take the place of this individual in the world. We should not try to comfort the family by saying that "it was his time anyway", or, "he was suffering". These may be words of comfort later. However, there must be time to mourn the fact that things will never be the same. One minute he was here and now he is gone. The human
