His Journey's Just Begun Don't think of him as gone away, his journey's just begun life holds so many facets this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting from the sorrow and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years Think how he must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched… for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much. The Family! "God Saw you getting Tired" God saw you were getting weary So, he did what he thought was best He came and stood beside you, He whispers "come and rest" You bid no one a last farewell, not even a goodbye You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. The family acknowledges with deep appreciation and thanks for all acts of kindness shown to them during their time of bereavement. May God bless you and His love be yours to share.
