I thought we could have a thread where people can post things like this. I want to share with you a song I heard and also two poems that were written on the back of the "A Celebration of life" cards (The little card thingies you get at at the funeral home. I don't know what they are called.  These we're two different ones for my grandpa.
 
First one:
 
Your gentle face and patient smile
with sadness we recall. You had a
kindly word for each And died beloved by all.
 
The voice is mute and stilled teh
heart, that loved us well and true. Ah,
bitter was the trial to part from one so
good as you.
 
You are not forgotten loved one, nor
will you ever be. As long as life and
memory last we will remember theee.
 
We miss you now, our hearts are
sore. As time goes by we miss you
more. Your loving smile, your gentle
face. No one can take your vacant
place.
 
The second one which I thought told more of him:
 
God saw you were getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to me."
 
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
 
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
to us, He only takes the best.
 
 
Here is the song: (it's from his CD we made for him. This was the song I picked)
 
"Heaven was needing a Hero"
 
I came by today to see you,
Oh I had to let you know.
If I knew the last that I held you was the last time,
I'd of held you and never let go.
Oh it's kept me awake nights wondering,
Lie in the dark just asking why.
I've always been told, you wont be called home,
until it's your time.
 
Chorus:
I guess heaven was needing a hero.
Somebody just like you.
Brave enough to stay up for what you believe.
And following through.
When I tried to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to,
Was heaven was needing a hero like you.
 
I remember the last time I saw you,
Oh you held you head up proud.
I laughed inside when I saw how you were,
Standing out in the crowd.
Your such a part of you I am.
Now that part would just be void.
No matter how much I need you now,
Heaven needed you more.
 
Chorus:
Cuz heaven was needing a hero.
Somebody just like you.
Brave enough to stay up for what you believe.
And following through.
When I tried to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to,
Was heaven was needing a hero like you.
Yes heaven was needing a hero.. that's you...

Tests for what? Hope all turns out well for you Lyn. I am happy you made memories with your mother. And that your making some more with your father. I cannot imagine how I would be if either one, or both of my parents passed. I would be a total mess.
