A special prayer just for you is being sent your way;
please know your always in our thoughts today and everyday!
February 24, 1953 ~ September 6, 2011
Today as we sat with you, we saw you growing tired, we asked our God to take your hand and lead you towards the light. As he placed his arms around you as the day drew to night, we heard a sweet voice say, It's time to take that boat ride. I have it waiting at the dock. It's captain is a loved one, one you've longed to see. It's time you rest and say goodbye and come take a walk with me. I've made a special place for you free from suffering and all the pain. There's a gentle breeze a blowing with the scent of summer rain.
Tonight I need an angel to help me count the stars. I need another angel and now that's what you are. "Just a closer walk with thee", a song we love to hear. I surely being sung today as a gift from us to thee. There is no greater place is what you can now say to all on earth who love you, who will join you there some day! Soon we'll all be angels mere sparkles all we'll be, to know your watching over us we'll just look up and you we'll see. Now wipe your face and dry your eyes, shed no more tears for me., for I'll see you all again someday no ones sure just when, but he. No worries about time, for there's plenty here, no need for watch nor clocks. Now think of me, as I will you and I'll be waiting at the dock.
