    someone posted this about Rocky and his wife..........
    We should all take this to heart !

    I’d like the memory of us
    to be a happy one.
    we want to leave an after glow
    of smiles when life is done.
    We'd like to leave an echo
    whispering softly down the ways,
    Of happy times and laughing times
    and bright and sunny days.
    we’d like the tears of those who grieve,
    to dry before the sun.
    Don’t grieve for us, for now we're free
    We're following the path God has laid you see.
    we took His hand when we heard him call
    and turned our backs and left it all.
    we could not stay another day
    To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way
    we found that peace at the close of day.
    If our parting has left a void
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
    our life’s been full, we savored much
    Good friends and goodtimes
    Perhaps our time seemed all too brief
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
    God wanted us now; He set us free

    After having to endure the news of 7 friends and family members passing away this year, I agree totally with your post.
    May perpetual light shine upon them.

    It's always the "great guys" that this kind of thing happens to. Beach-UPSer, tell his family there's a lot of people thinking of them.

    "Life is eternal," the good Lord said,
    so do not think of your loved one as dead
    For death is only a stepping-stone
    to a beautiful life we have never known,
    A place where God promised man he would be
    eternally happy and safe and free.
    A wonderful land where we live anew
    when our journey on earth is over and through.
    So trust God and doubt Him never,
    for all who love Him live forever,
    And while we cannot understand
    just let the Savior take your hand,
    For when death's angel comes to call
    God is so great and we're so small....
    And there is nothing you need fear
    for faith in God makes all things clear.
    Life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is a gateway--an entrance and portal-- into a life that no man can envision, for God has a greater perspective and vision.

    Death Is the Gateway to
    Eternal Life

    Death is just another step
    along life's changing way,
    No more than just a gateway
    to a new and better day.
    And parting from our loved ones
    is much easier to bear,
    When we know that they are waiting
    for us to join them there.
    So death is just a natural thing
    like the closing of a door.
    As we start upon a journey to a
    new and distant shore.
    And none need make this journey
    undirected or alone,
    For God promised us safe passage
    to this vast and great unknown.
    So let your grief be softened,
    and yield not to despair,
    You have only placed your loved one
    in the loving Father's care.
    Death is not sent as punishment, It is a graduation to glory! And even though in this instance, death came in a cruel, inhuman way, God had taken their souls before the cruelty of death was even apparent to them. You must realize that they rose unencumbered to meet God, and they are safe and free where all the problems of this restless, violent world will no longer disturb their beautiful minds.

    God Bless the family, friends and be with them to help guide them through there troubled days before them my thoughts and prayers will be with all of you...
