When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,

And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It almost seemed impossible
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heavens Gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you.
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?"

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.

Jesus sent His best Angels for her on May 27, 2006 so that she could rest her tired body in His arms.
She is deeply missed by her husband, children, sisters and a host of friends.

We all felt so helpless on that sad day you left us. We know that you saw your Mom waiting for you before you finally breathed your last labored breath. That must have been beautiful and comforting to you. Your body is finally free from sickness and pain. You left us much too soon but you left each of us cherished memories of your gentle presence in our lives.

Love, Martha

Went to be with Jesus 10 hours later.

She was my triplete sister and I will see her one day in the arms of Jesus. What a great day for all of us to see the ones who went on before.
I know she will know me, as I will know her.

My Mama says My Daddy was a fun person. Always laughing and joking. She says when I was born he took me over and I was Daddy's Little Girl. I know we had a strong bond. Because eventho I was a small child when he died and have few memories, just a few bits and pieces. I have thought of him every day of my life and missed him terribly.
I was angry for years because he left me. Then I went through years of grieving. Now I am able to have this contact with him by way of his memorial and it has been a great outlet for me.

They say memories are golden Maybe that is true I never wanted memories I only wanted you. A million times I needed you A million times I cried If love alone could have saved you You never would have died.

Your Daughter, Nita
