Memories Timeline


  1. Audrey and family, My heartfelt condolences to you and your sweet family. You were just like family to me in CCU. I am sending a beautiful poem that hopefully may brighten your day.If you could see where I have gone, the beauty of this place.And how it feels to know you're home to see the Savior's face.To wake in peace and know no fear, just joy beyond compare.While still on earth you miss me…yet, you wouldn't want me there.If you could see where I have gone, had made the trip with me,You'd know I didn't go alone, The Savior came with me.When I awoke He was by my side, and reached out his hand,Said, Hurry, Child, you're going Home to a grand and glorious land! Don't worry over those you love, For I'm not only with you.And don't you know with you at Home they'll long to be Here too?If you could see where I have gone and see what I've been shown,You'd never know another fear or ever feel alone.You'd marvel at the care of God, His hand on every lifeAnd realize He cares and bears with us each strife.He weeps when one is lost, His heart is filled with pain.But oh, The joy when one comes Home, His child at Home again.If you could see where I have gone and could stay awhile with me,And could share the things that God has made to grace Eternity,But no, you could never leave once Heaven's joy you've known.You couldn't bear to walk earth's paths once Heaven was your Home.If you could see where I have gone, you'd know we'll meet somedayAnd though I'm parted from you now, that I'm not far away.So thank you family; thank you friends for living for the Lord,For teaching me to love Him; to trust Him and His word.And now that I'm at home with Him, secure in every way,I'm waiting here at Heaven's door, to greet you some sweet day.May God bless you all.Colleen

  8. Please know we are praying for your family in this time of grief. I want to pass along this beautiful poem to show my love.Do not stand at my grave and weepI am not there; I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow,I am the diamond glints on snow,I am the sun on ripened grain,I am the gentle autumn rain.When you awaken in the morning's hushI am the swift uplifting rushOf 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.
