  8. When tommrow starts without me
    Please try to understand
    That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand
    The angel said my place was ready, in heaven far above
    And that I’d have to leave those I dearly loved
    But when I walked thru heavens gates,I felt so at home
    For God looked down and smiled and said WELCOME HOME
    So when tommrow starts without me
    Don’t think we’re far apart
    For every time you think of me
    I’m right there in your heart.
    (Love Me)

  9. You may not physically be here Dad, but you’ll always have a safe and special place in my heart. This isn’t easy for any of us but all of the beautiful words that we have shared ease the heartache a bit. You were so brave Dad. We are proud of you. We will all miss you. I love you so very much Dad.

  10. Thank you for everything you have done for me Dad. You are my hero and helped me become the person I am today. I will not forget the passage you wrote for me when I left for my deployment, I look at it everyday. I love you and may you rest in peace.

    2 Timothy 2:4
    “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
