"Some people come into our lives and quickly go.  Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to the understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.  Some people make the sky more beautiful just to gaze upon.  They stay in our lives for awhile, leaving footprints on our hearts.  And we are never, ever the same." 


             In Loving Memory of You 
                by Debbie Heydrick

           Quietly I'm remembering you
           in the silence of my heart.
           Each thought of you, a treasure
           while we are now apart.

           At times I'm filled with longing;
           Your face I'd love to see,
           To feel your warmth, to hear your voice,
           to have you here with me.

           But God has a plan; He created you
           and numbered all your days.
           May he hold you in His loving arms
           and surround me with His grace.

           With the hope of reunion in Heaven one day,
           I entrust you in His care.
           Cherished memories of you live on in my heart.
           Your life is a gift we share.
