WHERE ARE YOU

JUST YESTERDAY YOU WERE THERE EASY TO FIND

ALL YOUR WITS WERE ABOUT YOU SHARP IN THE MIND

INDEPENDENT AND SELF ASSERTIVE A HELPER INDEED

WILLING AND ABLE TO ASSIST SOMEONE IN NEED

A GOD GIVEN TALENT DID NOT GO TO WASTE

BE IT COOKING OR TEACHING NEVER IN HASTE

FRUSTRATION WAS THERE WHEN WE DID NOT GET IT RIGHT

FOR YOU KNEW THE VICTORY WAS THERE IN OUR SIGHT

YOU WERE PARTNERED WITH A FRIEND MARRIED FOR LIFE

EIGHT CHILDREN TO RAISE DESPITE ALL THE STRIFE

WITH ALL THE CHILDREN GROWN YOU SAW URGENT NEEDS

WITH AN ARROGANT BOLDNESS YOU PLANTED GOD'S SEEDS

FOR YOU KNEW SALVATION WAS HIS ULTIMATE CHOICE

THERE WAS SINCERITY AND ASSURANCE IN YOUR BOASTFUL VOICE

HUSBAND AND WIFE , MOM AND DAD , PARTNERS TILL THE END

A PROMISE FOR NOW OF WHICH YOU BOTH AGREED THEN

BUT LIFE IS THERE WITH ITS TWISTS AND ITS TURNS

OUR EYE IS UPON HEAVEN AND FOR IT OUR HEART YEARNS

BUT AS TIME PASSES ON YOU BECOME HIDDEN FROM VIEW

YOU ARE STILL THERE BEFORE US HIDDEN INSIDE OF YOU

FROM TIME TO TIME A GLIMMER OF HOPE GRACIOUSLY SURGES

THE YOU THAT WE REMEMBER UNEXPECTEDLY EMERGES

APPARENTLY THIS IS A STRUGGLE YOU FELT DEEP INSIDE

THANKFUL THAT GODS HOLY SPIRIT WILL ALWAYS ABIDE

WITH BOTH OF YOUR AGING PARENTS YOU BOTH TENDED TO THEIR NEEDS

THEY ARE NOW ALL IN HEAVEN THANKFUL FOR YOUR GOOD DEEDS

YOU NOW RETURN TO DEPENDENCE FROM YOUR PARTNER IN LIFE

HE ASSUMES THE JOB WILLINGLY A SOLEMN PROMISE TO HIS WIFE

LATE NIGHT AND DAILY CHALLENGES DENY NEEDED REST

WITH QUIETNESS AND SOLITUDE DAD WOULD DO HIS BEST

YOU MAY PONDER WHERE WERE THE CHILDREN IN THE MIDST OF THE TRIAL

THEY WERE THERE ALL ALONG PERHAPS IN DENIAL

HOW COULD A PERSON INDEPENDENT , FREE AND , STRONG

COULD SUCCUMB AND BECOME HIDDEN INSIDE OF HERSELF BEFORE LONG

TIME IS OUR CAPTURE FOR EACH IT MOVES ON

WE BECOME MORE DEPENDENT ON OTHERS BEFORE LONG

GOD IS GRACIOUS AND GOD IS GOOD

PROVIDING LOVE AND COMFORT AS HE TOLD US HE WOULD

WE PRAY FOR HEALING AND RESTORATION FOR BOTH MOM AND DAD TODAY

FOR BOTH TO ENJOY LIFE WITH ALL THE GIFTS GOD HAS SENT ON ITS WAY

GOD FULFILLS A PROMISE OF REWARDS FOR A JOB WELL DONE

PEACE AND COMFORT ON EARTH AND A MANSION IN HEAVEN JUST FOR FUN

OUR MEMORY MAY FAIL US AS TIME MARCHES ON

RELY ON TO THE MEMORY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT , FATHER AND SON

WHEN FINALLY WE EXIT FROM OUR EARTHLY SPACE

ALL WILL BE ASSURED YOU WILL GAZE UPON HIS HOLY FACE                                   

MOM PASSED AWAY IN HER BIRTH MONTH OCTOBER OF 2007 ALZHHEIMER CLAIMED ANOTHER VICTIM HEAVEN HAS RECEIVED ANOTHER POWERFUL SOLDIER OF THE FAITH . THE NIGHT OF HER PASSING A STRANGE STAR GLOW WAS DISCOVERED BY THE ASTRONOMERS 10-23-2007

LATER DAD BEGAN HIS JOURNEY THROUGH THE ALZHEIMER'S TUNNEL WITH THE FAMILY TO ASSIST SINCE THE DISEASE HAS NEW UNDERSTANDING. DAD'S JOURNEY TO ETERNITY BEGAN WITH HIS PASSING ON 3-13-2013

REST IN PEACE MOM AND DAD
