|Let the memory of Wendell be with us forever|
"Happy Birthday Wendell! Gone but never forgotten!!"
"Goodnight Dad God Bless
You used to spoil me rotten
With all your love and care
But now each time I look for you
You suddenly aren't there
I knew that it was coming
And that we'd have to say goodbye
But Dad, I wasn't ready
And the sad day has arrived
I'll no longer feel your arms around me tightly when I cry
Or be able to kiss you softly or wave to you goodbye
Because you are no longer here
For God's special angels have been sent to carry you away
I hope you're watching over me the way you used to do
It really is the only way I think I might get through
Our tears and hurt consume us
As we lose you in our lives
But we have such happy memories behind these bloodshot eyes
I'll always miss you, Daddy, and I'll always love you too
There'll never be another daddy quite as loved as you
Goodnight, God bless
Love and Miss you and all your craziness..."
"I really can't remember a time growing up that Wendell wasn't there! Being first cousins, we were always together! Our families got together every Sunday, after church, for dinner! What fun we all had! Times were so simple back then! I remember when Wendell got polio at 18 months old and the family came together to help in his care! I will always treasure that time growing up with him!! As we grew into adults, our paths took different routes, but everytime I went to Ruskin, I tried to see him! We always had a bond, that even though we didn't see each other that much, couldn't be broken! Even as adults, he always called me 'Sistee'! What a wonderful person he was, and I am so blessed to have known him! Rest in peace!!"
Have a suggestion for us?
