  5. 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 sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years

    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.
    E. Brenneman

    Marj, I hope these words will bring you some comfort as they did for me when Sam passed.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family as you lay Ron to rest…..Myrna
