Happy birthday Dad, How fast the years have passed. It is hard to imagine you not here since 2000. The family has grown and you have five great grandsons that you would love to have around you and I know they would love to have you. I hope that wherever you are, mom is with you and you are able to see us. It is comforting to think in this vein. Have a great birthday and we all send our love.

A Wish for a Friend

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


An Irish Funeral Prayer

Death is nothing at all.
 It does not count.
 I have only slipped away into the next room.
 Everything remains as it was.
 The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
 Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
 Call me by the old familiar name.
 Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
 Put no sorrow in your tone. 
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
 Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. 
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
  Let it be spoken without effort
. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
 There is unbroken continuity.
 Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?  
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
  All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
 One brief moment and all will be as it was before.  
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.
