In Loving Memory Of Our Son and Brother /  Loving Father of Kristy Lynn / The Lord Is My Shepherd / Jackie You are not alone.  You never have been, and you never will be .  God has been with you every step of the way.  Where the path leads, he is lighting lamps to guide you.  And if you ever do feel for a second that he is not right there besides you, it is only because he has gone ahead for a moment or two to build a bridge that will keep you safe from harm and that will lead you towards the sunlight shining through.  Wherever you go, God will always be with you.

Together Forever / Do Not Stand at my grave and weep; I am not there I do Not Sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not Die.
