Remember Harry as he soars through Heaven

For they that wait upon
 the Lord shall renew
their strength; they shall
mount up with wings,
 as eagles; they shall run,
and not be weary; they
shall walk, and not be faint
Is 40.31

 

 
 


A friendly smile,
 a casual touch,
These are the things
 that mean so much.
To know you are with us
 in our time of sorrow,
Sharing our prayers,
today and  tomorrow.
God gives us comfort
 in the form of good friends.
 May his peace be with you
 His love never ends.

Father's Day is approaching. Yellow roses grow in heaven.   
Lord pick a bunch for me place them in my father's arms and tell him they're from me.
Tell him that I love and miss him. When he turns to smile place a kiss upon his cheek & hold him for awhile,
tell him I love him still. Remembering him is easy, I do it every day
There's an ache in my heart that will never go away.
Donna J Kaufman.
