Stories

Thank you Marine for your service to this great nation and to our Corps.....

 I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln." 

 

The Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. 
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you. 
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. 
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

 

 

To My Dearest Family

To My Dearest Family

 

Some things I'd like to say,

but first of all to let you know

that I arrived okay

I'm writing this from Heaven

where I dwell with God above

where there's no more tears

or sadness there

is just eternal love

Please do not be unhappy

just because I'm out of sight

remember that I'm with you

every morning, noon and night

That day I had to leave you

when my life on Earth was through

God picked me up and hugged me

and He said I welcome you

It's good to have you back again

you were missed while you were gone

as for your dearest family

they'll be here later on

I need you here so badly

as part of My big plan

there's so much that we have to do

to help our mortal man

Then God gave me a list of things

He wished for me to do

and foremost on that list of mine

is to watch and care for you

And I will be beside you

every day and week and year

and when you're sad

I'm standing there

to wipe away the tear

And when you lie in bed at night

the days chores put to flight

God and I are closest to you

in the middle of the night

When you think of my life on Earth

and all those loving years

because you're only human

they are bound to bring you tears

But do not be afraid to cry

it does relieve the pain

remember there would be no flowers

unless there was some rain

I wish that I could tell you

of all that God has planned

but if I were to tell you

you wouldn't understand

But one thing is for certain

though my life on Earth is o're

I am closer to you now

than I ever was before

And to my very many friends

trust God knows what is best

I'm still not far away from you

I'm just beyond the crest

There are rocky roads ahead of you

and many hills to climb

but together we can do it

taking one day at a time

It was always my philosophy

and I'd like it for you too

that as you give unto the World

so the World will give to you

If you can help somebody

who is in sorrow or in pain

then you can say to God at night

my day was not in vain

And now I am contented

that my life it was worthwhile

knowing as I passed along the way

I made somebody smile

So if you meet somebody

who is down and feeling low

just lend a hand to pick him up

as on your way you go

When you are walking

down the street

and you've got me on your mind

I'm walking in your footsteps

only half a step behind

And when you feel the gentle breeze

or the wind upon your face

that's me giving you a great big hug

or just a soft embrace

And when it's time for you to go

from that body to be free

remember you're not going

you are coming here to me

And I will always love you

from that land way up above

Will be in touch again soon

P.S. God sends His Love
