AMERICAN HEROES

on July 13, 2008 - 9:56am

ON FRIDAY MY HUSBAND AND I WENT TO PA TO SEE THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL OF FLIGHT 93.IT WAS SAD AND OVER WHELMING AT THE SAME TIME,IT WAS A BIG FIELD WERE THE BRAVE RISKED THEIR LIVES TO SAVE SO MANY OTHERS.THEY HAD ANGELS, MEMORIALS,NOTES,FLAGS,BENCHES WITH EACH MEMBERS NAMES WHO WERE ON THE PLANE. AND THE PHRASE"LET'S ROLL"IT MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK WHAT TRUE BRAVERY IS AND ALL THE HEROES THAT ARE IN IRAQ. WE SAY THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!!! I CAN JUST IMAGINE JOSH STANDING IN THAT FIELD SINGING "YOU RAISE ME UP" TO ALL WHO LOST THEIR LIFE ON THAT BRAVE DAY.

MY FRIEND

on July 3, 2008 - 9:47am

IT,S BEEN A COUPLE OF DAYS SINCE I LAST WRITTEN, TODAY OUR VET CALLED TO LET US KNOW THAT SHELBY'S ASHES WERE IN. SO MY BABY IS COMING HOME,IT HELPS A LITTLE TO KNOW SHE WILL BE BACK WITH US.YESTERDAY WE RECEIVED A CARD A POST CARD FROM THE VET WITH SHELBY'S PAW PRINTS ON IT AND ALSO A POEM ON THE OTHER SIDE IT MADE ME FEEL BETTER,BUT ALSO BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYES. SO TO EVERYONE WHO HAS LOST A PET HERE IS THE POEM.

IF IT SHOULD BE
IF IT SHOULD BE THAT I GROW FRAIL AND WEAK,AND PAIN SHOULD WAKE ME FROM MY SLEEP;
THEN YOU MUST DO WHAT WHAT MUST BE DONE, FOR THIS BATTLE CAN'T BE WON.

YOU WILL BE SAD, I'LL UNDESTAND DON'T LET GRIEF THEN STAY YOUR HAND; FOR THIS DAY MORE THAN ALL THE REST, YOUR LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP STAND THE TEST.

WE'VE HAD SO MANY HAPPY YEARS, WHAT IS TO COME WILL HOLD NO FEARS; YOU'LL NOT WANT ME TO SUFFER,SO WHEN THE TIME COMES,PLEASE LET ME GO.

I KNOW IN TIME,YOU TOO WILL SEE,IT IS A KINDNESS YOU DO ME;ALTHOUGH MY TAIL ITS LAST HAS WAVED, FROM PAIN AND SUFFERING, I'VE BEEN SAVED.

DO NOT GRIEVE THAT IT SHOULD BE YOU,WHO HAS TO DECIDE THIS THING TO DO; WE'VE BEEN SO CLOSE, WE TWO, THESE,YEARS, DON'T LET YOUR HEART HOLD ANY TEARS.

DAD'S DAY

on June 15, 2008 - 1:21pm

My Dad was the greatest Dad, he was awesome. He lived his life to the fullest, he loved any adventure and would try anythig once. My Dad made the best of everthing even if it was just going to the Home Depot,he had a crazy sense of humor.He loved riding harleys, we went on many trips together with my husband Tom,and my sister Mary.We went to Kentucky, Upstate New york, and Bike Week Daytona Beach which was our best and funniest trips.We wanted to go to Sturgis but we never made it there. We had many cook outs especially on Father's Day,after the cook out was over ,my Dad and husband would sit in the drive way and smoke there cigars and relax and look at the stars. I would sit out there with them smiling and laughing, and my Dad was so happy just with us and smoking his cigar. So Dad Happy Father's Day,I know your smiling down on us enjoying your cigar and listening to Pink Floyd and waiting for the day we will all be together again. "I'm Free" Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God laid for me.I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all.I could not stay another day to laugh,to love,to work,or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A frienship shared, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes these things I, too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow; i wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full; I savored much good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief; don't lenghten it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart share with me God wanted me now,He set me free. AUTHOR UNKNOWN DAD, WE LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH FOREVER AND ALWAYS......
