He still speaks in the echoes of the words I heard him say again and again.........

What is Dying - Bishop Brent I am standing upon that foreshore, a ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, "there! she's gone! " "Gone where?" "Gone from my sight, that's all", she is just as large in mast and spar and hull as ever she was when she left my side; just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at that moment when someone at my side says, "there! she's gone!" there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "here she comes!" And that is dying.

When I Think Of Death - Maya Angelou When I think of death, and of late the idea has come with alarming frequency, I seem at peace with the idea that a day will dawn when I will no longer be among those living in this valley of strange humors.  I can accept the idea of my own demise, but I am unable to accept the death of anyone else.  I find it impossible to let a friend or relative go into that country of no return.  Disbelief becomes my close companion, and anger follows in its wake. I answer the heroic question 'Death, where is thy sting? ' with ' it is here in my heart and mind and memories.'

BROTHER Today is full of memories of a BROTHER laid to rest and every single one of them is filled with happiness For you were someone special always such a joy to know and there was so much pain when it was time to let you go This special message is sent to heaven above for the angels to take care of you and give you all my LOVE

There are no TEARS in heaven or GRIEF of any kind I leave this final teardrop to those I've left behind Though ABSENT from the body I'm present with the LORD The JOY of my salvation Is now my FULL REWARD

Happy 60th Birthday Johnny: I love & miss you everyday, always: Karo He Sendeth Sun He Sendeth Shower He sendeth sun, he sendeth shower, Alike they're needful for the flower: And joys and tears alike are sent To give the soul fit nourishment. As comes to me or cloud or sun, Father! thy will, not mine, be done! Can loving children e'er reprove With murmurs whom they trust and love? Creator! I would ever be A trusting, loving child to thee: As comes to me or cloud or sun, Father! thy will, not mine, be done! Oh, ne'er will I at life repine: Enough that thou hast made it mine. When falls the shadow cold of death I yet will sing, with parting breath, As comes to me or shade or sun, Father! thy will, not mine, be done! Poem by Sarah Fuller Flower Adams

I prayed for death to come to him, and take away his pain. But death, I am so jealous, I want him back again. I went and knelt beside his grave, but no matter how I try. The words just would not come, I could not say goodbye. I thought that when he passed away, I would feel relief. But the only thing that I can feel, is emptiness and grief. I long to see him one more time, to tell him how I feel. If I could only talk to him, I know my heart would heal.

I have heard of a land on the faraway strand, ’Tis a beautiful home of the soul; Built by Jesus on high, where we never shall die, ’Tis a land where we never grow old Never grow old, never grow old, In a land where we’ll never grow old; Never grow old, never grow old, In a land where we’ll never grow old. In that beautiful home where we’ll never more roam, We shall be in the sweet by and by; Happy praise to the King through eternity sing, ’Tis a land where we never shall die. When our work here is done and the life-crown is won, And our troubles and trials are o’er; All our sorrow will end, and our voices will blend, With the loved ones who’ve gone on before. HAPPY 59TH BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN JACK. FOREVER MISSING YOU. KARO

Let me see your smile. We'll run down to the fallen pine and play for just a while. You can be whoever you choose, I'll be someone too. Let's get Jude and Jan, and go jump into the creek. Later we'll sneak to Mama's kitchen for cold biscuits and tenderloin Hide and seek, kick the can tie James to a tree. Riding horses, riding bikes, fishing, tire swings, picnic tables, corn chips, ham sandwiches and Foolish dares and mischievous plans witty bunch of hooligans. Oh how we could get under Mama's skin with all of our shenanigans. So much did we say and do, vivid such sweet memories of you. Sad it is, to not have one last chance to sit and reminisce about our past. Laughter to the point of tears of all we shared throughout the years. Yet Maybe... We may still see each other, sometime in a dream, we'll walk along the old dirt road sharing how it use to be. Or perhaps I'll hear that childhood laugh and you'll let me see that smile. We'll run down to that fallen pine and play for just a while. I love you still.... Karo

I'VE CROSSED A WORLD OF SAND AND TEARS IN SEARCH OF YOU!

AND THEN SHE MOVED FROM SHOCK TO GRIEF. THE WAY SHE MIGHT ENTER ANOTHER ROOM!
Posted by Jennifer Johnson on 4th July 2014
SHE KNEW WHAT IS WAS TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE WHO WOULD NEVER COME HOME. SHE KNEW THAT GRIEF, LIKE A SCAR, FADED BUT NEVER REALLY WENT AWAY..
Posted by Jennifer Johnson on 4th July 2014
GRIEF WAS FOR THE OTHERS, SORROW AND PAIN WERE FOR THE OTHERS, SOME TERRIBLE MISTAKE HAD BEEN MADE...
Posted by Jennifer Johnson on 4th July 2014
GRIEF WEIGHS NOTHING. BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO DRAG IT AROUND!
Posted by Jennifer Johnson on 4th July 2014
THEY SAY TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS, BUT THAT PRESUMES THE SOURCE OF THE GRIEF IS FINITE. OVER! THIS IS A FRESH WOUND EVERYDAY...
Posted by Jennifer Johnson on 4th July 2014
YOU ARE DEAD YOU ARE DEAD THATS IT
Posted by Jennifer Johnson on 4th July 2014
MY GRIEF HAS BURROWED INTO ME LIKE A DARK THING THAT EATS AWAY AT MY LIFE. I cant help it.....

REMEMBER ME TO THE LIVING I AM GONE. TO THE SORROWFUL, I WILL NEVER RETURN. TO THE ANGRY, I WAS CHEATED BUT TO THE HAPPY, I AM AT PEACE AND TO THE FAITHFUL, I HAVE NEVER LEFT. I CANNOT SPEAK, BUT I CAN LISTEN. I CANNOT BE SEEN, BUT I CAN BE HEARD. SO AS YOU STAND UPON THE SHORE GAZING AT A BEAUTIFUL SEA, REMEMBER ME. AS YOU LOOK IN AWE AT A MIGHTY FOREST AND IT'S GRAND MAJESTY; REMEMBER ME. REMEMBER ME IN YOUR HEARTS, IN YOUR THOUGHTS, AND THE MEMORIES OF THE TIMES WE LOVED, THE TIMES WE CRIED, THE BATTLE I FOUGHT AND THE TIMES WE LAUGHED, FOR IF YOU ALWAYS THINK OF ME, I WILL HAVE NEVER GONE. LOVING YOU JACK KARO

They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal,But neither time nor reason,Will change the way I feel,For no one knows the heartache,That lies behind our smiles,No one knows how many times We have broken down and cried,I want to tell you something, So there won't be any doubt,You're so wonderful to think of,But so hard to live without.
Posted by Judy Reams on 12th January 2014
JOHNNY,I MISS YOU SO MUCH.AND I LOVE YOU.

Have never meet you but know much about you from the love ones here on earth. I admire the woman that tells the wonderful stories of you and her, and feel that one day, she too will rejoice with you in Heaven. Just to let you know, you are not forgotten here on earth.
Posted by Judith Reams on 4th July 2013
I don't need a month of Sunday's,To say a prayer for you,Cause any day I close my eyes,Your smiling face comes through.The pain of losing you continues,It hasn't healed at all,Although the days keep rolling,The tears for you still fall.I see the signs you leave me,To let me know you're here,But still I long to hold you,And always keep you near.Oh how i miss you.How I love you so.
Posted by Judith Reams on 4th July 2013
If I'd known you was leaving, I would never have let you go,They say that times a healer,But what they did'nt know.How much my heart was broken,The day you had to go.It seems there is no ending.To this pain I feel,But one day soon I'm hoping,
Posted by Judith Reams on 4th July 2013
My broken heart will heal.You meant more than life to me,This pain will still remain,As I go through life each day,Until we meet again.I wish that I could have you right here with me again,And only then,If I see you again, Will I feel no more pain.I miss you.I love you.I send my love,Until we meet again.

The moment that you died my heart was torn in two, one side filled with heartache, the other died with you. "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith

On Angel's wings you were taken.But in my heart you'll stay.And in God's light you will rest.Until we meet again someday.
Posted by Judy Reams on 17th July 2012
Remembering you is easy,I do it every day, but there's an ache within my heart that will never go away.
Posted by Judy Reams on 11th July 2012
You will never be forgotten.For though we are apart.You are always and forever. Alive within my heart.
Posted by Judy Reams on 5th July 2012
For someone who meant so much and loved by all he knew who left behind a trail of tears and precious memories, too.We loved the sunshine in his smile and kindness in his heart.But heaven saw that he was tired which meant we had to part.And now that it's his special day dear angels hear our prayer please guard him with your gentle wings and tend him with great care.
