Family Time

Pop and some of the family from Thanksgiving 2004. 

I want to thank each and every one of you for you kind, supportive words, prayers, good vibes, etc.  We’re holding our own here.  The funeral isn’t until Monday, so it will likely be Tuesday before I blog again.  There’s so much I’d like to share with you about this remarkable man, but I need a little more time.  Maybe for his birthday, I’ll work on a post I can just publish that day…

I apologize for not responding to each and every comment and/or email.  I’ve read them all though, and have shared some with the Knight too, and we heartily appreciate each and every one!

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
    I’m following the path God has laid you see.
    I took His hand when I heard him call
    I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day
    To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way
    I found that peace at the close of day.

    If my parting has left a void
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
    Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I savored much
    Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
    God wanted me now; He set me free.
