Listed here are the family members that have gone home to our family in the heavens. While it might be a seat left empty at our reunion, the memories of the person who once sat in that seat will continue on in the generations of family memebers who honor their memory in their stories, pictures, and actions. Like Margaret Mead said in her poem below...."For if you always think of me, I will never be gone."
To the living, I am gone; to the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated, but to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot speak, but I can listen. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea, Remember me.
As you look upon a flower and admire it's simplicity, Remember me.
Remember me in you hearts, thoughts, and your memories of the
times we loved, the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.
For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.
If you have a loved one that is a family member that should be on this list, please contact us to have them added.
