In memory of Amy Jo Chamberlain on her 29th birthday on December 9, 2010. We love and miss you so very much. Happy birthday, Amy Jo!
I remember how your graceful presence when you entered a room would brighten someone’s day just by being there.
I remember your fragile body wanting to be like the other kids your age, but you knew you weren’t and you tried so very hard to “fit in” with them.
I remember our toomany to-count trips to the hospital and in your young voice you would say “Don’t worry Mommy, I will be OK.”
I remember how your struggles to fight made others admire your courage.
I remember how you would come home from school, and you and your brother, Ryan, would watch “Zoobilee Zoo” together, which was one of your favorite TV shows.
I remember how you wanted to help with the house chores like washing dishes, folding laundry, etc., the simple things that we take for granted that would mean so much and time we got to share together.
I remember your unforgettable, angelic smile that to this day people who knew you remember you by that and the beautiful person you were and how you touched their lives in so many different ways with just your smile.
Those are some of the things I remember about you that I wanted to share with others and how you enriched my life by my being blessed to have you as my daughter.
Thank you God for my blessings and for loving my angel, Amy Jo.
Dad, Mom and Ryan
In memory of John Eader on his birthday, December 9, 1934 – June 19, 2010:
For Those I Love, For Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You mustn’t tie yourself to me with too many tears. Be happy that we had these years together. I gave you all my love. You can only guess how much you gave me happiness. I thank you for love you each have shown. But now it’s time I must travel alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must. But let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for awhile that we must be apart.
So cherish the memories that lie within your heart. I won’t be far away for life goes on. So if you need me call and I will come. Though you can’t see me or touch me, I’ll be near and if you listen with your heart you’ll hear all my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you come this way, I’ll greet you with a smile and say welcome.
Wife Phyllis and children
In memory of Dad, Vearl Fletcher, who passed away December 18, 2009, on Friday night of the third Advent week:
The year’s shortest day and longest night
This is the day we have more hours of darkness then of daylight.
The night the star of Bethlehem guided visitors to the the baby born on the first Christmas. That night must have been a great comfort to travelers from the East.
We too depend on a special light from God. It is the light of the world. May we be led by thee.
On December 17 this year, we shall look for this gospel light of mine. I’m going to let it shine in memory of you.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
