~ Beyond the Sunset ~

Should you go first and I remain
To walk the road alone
Iíll live in memoryís garden, dear
With happy days weíve known
In Spring, Iíll watch for roses red
When faith the lilacs bloom
And in early Fall
When brown leaves call
Iíll catch a glimpse of you

Should you go first and I remain
To finish with the scroll
No lengthen shadows
Shall creep in
To make this life seem droll
Weíve known so much of happiness
And weíve had our cup of joy
But memory is one gift of God
That death cannot destroy

Should you go first and I remain
For battles to be fought
Each thing youíve touched
Along the way
Will be a hallowed spot
Iíll hear your voice
Iíll see your smile
And though blindly I may grope
The memory of your helping hand
Will buoy me on with hope

Should you go first and I remain
One thing Iíll have you do
Walk slowly down that long, long path
For soon Iíll follow you
And I want to know each step you take
That I may walk the same
For some day, some day
Down that lonely road
Youíll hear me call your name

Shortly before his passing he said . . .
"My house is in order. If God calls me tonight,
My bag is packed and I'm ready to go".
