In Memory


In loving memory of Pearle Hamil, who passed away one year ago on February 23, 2008:

Believe In Angels There's an angel always by your side Whether male or female It's there to be your guide It rejoices with each sunrise The beginning of each day Knowing that you're safe, indeed For in God's hand you stay And when the evening comes And the darkness makes its cover Your angel settles in the coming

night And above your head it hovers Believe in angels You have your very own Because you are God's special child And you'll never be alone And dear, Mamaw, We believe in angels They came for you one year ago We know you are still with us In our hearts, minds and souls You are dearly missed.

Love you so much,

Your family

In memory of Jean B. Melius, who died 40 years ago, February 24, 1969:

A Letter From Heaven To my dearest family, Some things I'd like to say, But first of all to let you know That I arrived okay I'm writing this from heaven Here I dwell with God above Here there are no more tears of

sadness Here is just eternal love Please do not be unhappy Just because I'm out of sight Remember that I am with you Every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you When my life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me And He said, "I welcome you. It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on I need you here so badly You are part of my plan There is so much that we can do To help our mortal man." God gave me a list of things That he wished for me to do And foremost on the list Was to watch and care for you And when you lie in bed at night The day's chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you In the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth And all those loving years, Because you are only human, They are bound to bring you tears But do not be afraid to cry It does relieve the pain Remember there would be no flowers Unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you All that God has planned If I were to tell you, You wouldn't understand But one thing is for certain, Though my life on earth is o'er, I'm closer to you now Than I ever was before. There are rocky roads ahead of you And many hills to climb But together we can do it By taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy And I'd like it for you too That as you give unto the world, The world will give to you. If you can help somebody Who is in sorrow and pain Then you can say to God at night "My day was not in vain." And now I am contented That my life was worthwhile Knowing that as I passed along

the way I made somebody smile. So if you meet somebody Who is sad and feeling low Just lend a hand to pick them up As on your way you go When you're walking down the street And you've got me on your mind I'm walking in your footsteps Only half a step behind And when it's time for you to go From that body to be free Remember you're not going You're coming here to me.

Keep sending the pennies
