The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console.
To be understood, as to understand.
To be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving, that we receive.
It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned.
And it is in dying, that we are born into Eternal Life.

Beloved sister, daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend

We miss Susan very much,

In Memory of William Blake

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep

I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle Autumn's rain

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die

We deeply appreciate your kind expression of sympathy
in our time of great sorrow.

Some people only dream of angels.
We held one in our arms.

The Family of
Ted Leon

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
and 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,
for I found peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you sunshine in all your tomorrows.
My life's been full, I've savored much,
good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
but don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me for
God wanted me now,
He set me free.

Thank you for all you have done.

Perhaps you sent a lovely card
or sat quietly in a chair
Perhaps you sent a floral piece
if so we saw it there
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words
as any friend could say
Perhaps you were not there at all
just thought of us that day
Whatever you did to console our hearts
we thank you so much whatever the part.

The Family of
Marcus Williams

God needed an angel in Heaven
to stand at the Savior's feet
His choice must be the rarest

then stopped and picked the best
Our child was His chosen one
with Jesus she's now at rest
