To Trevor, JoAnn and Donald
Life is like a tree; it grows and bears fruit

But, Every now and then a fruit falls to the ground And leaves an empty space on the tree

However, the remaining fruits must continues On……

Likewise, the family is like a tree
Each member is a fruit on the tree.
Sooner or later a fruit will fall to the ground. When this happens, the remainders should Comfort each other in love and harmony.

Being, aware that it is GOD; who shakes every tree.

Since, your family tree is rooted in JESUS CHRIST the tree of life.
GOD will supply all of your needs, according to his riches and glory,
Through JESUS CHRIST our savior.

Now, the tree in your life has been shaken, A fruit has fallen to the ground. Yet there is a blessing, for the remaining fruits on the tree.

So please remember to cherish the time that the remaining fruits have left together.
Because we just don't know when the tree will be


Much Love and Love always

To The YOUNG Family,

7 years ago I had to sit where you are sitting this morning. Call on Jesus and Know that if you lean on JESUS and hold on to his unchanging hand he will see you through.

From Margaret Doyle Johnston/Danyelle Doyle Frank Family

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

My prayers go out to the Wilson family. Travon was a young man with a bright future. It was never a dull day around him. I will miss his smile. We may not understand why God takes the good ones away but we know that He has a plan for everything that he does. So grieve right now but celebrate what his life meant and not how it left. Love, Danielle Douglas

JoAnn and Donald: Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer. When those we love have left this earth, we still can feel them near. We'll see a picture, hear a song, and it's just like they are here. And when we call upon our faith, when we believe and trust, we know the ones we care about are always close to us. May the peace which comes from the memories of love shared comfort you and your family now and in the days ahead. in
