We are so very sorry for your's and everyone's loss. Still hard to believe. You and Austin are in our prayers. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die. M.E.f.

Kathy & family, I am so sorry to hear of your husband's passing. I cannot even begin to imagine to pain your heart is feeling. All I know is my heart is breaking for you. God must have had a GREATER PURPOSE for your husband in Heaven to take him at such a young age. I pray for God to give you and your son comfort, strength, understanding and the ability to know that you have SO MANY friends and family that are praying for you both. If there is ANYTHING at all that I could possibly do to help you in any way PLEASE do not hesitate to reach out to me. I pray you hold each precious memory that you all shared together close to your heart and in some way that helps you feel him close to you. With continuous love and prayers... Your Friend Always, Arlene Murray Wade

With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: " Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." -Revelation 21:3,4 With Sympathy, Lillian Gammon
