  17. Longing For One More DayWhen we lose someone we love it seems that time stands still. What moves through us is a silence… a quiet sadness… A longing for one more day… one more word… one more touch… We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. We will see you again some day, in a heavenly place where there is no parting.
    A place where there are no words that mean good-by
    Irish Prayer

  20. Dear Nancy, Angie, John, Maggie, Jeff and Ray. I am so sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. I had no idea until I read the paper on Wednesday. Please believe me when I say how very sorry I am for your loss. Words alone cannot convey the sorrow I have as I feel Jack was my little adopted nephew for such a short while. My memories of his bright loving smile and carefree spirit will live with me for the rest of my days. If ever you want a friend. I am still here. Love and deepest respect to all of you at this sad time. Love, Dale.
