TO MY CHILDREN AND LOVED ONES
When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me
I know you’ll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand.
And said my place was ready
In heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But when I walked through heaven’s gates
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me
From His great golden throne.
He said, “This is eternity
And all I’ve promise you
Today for life on earth is past
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last,
And since each day’s the same way
There’s no longing for the past.
So when tomorrow starts without me
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me
I’m right here in your heart.”

Comments: Louis, Rex, and Boy's it shocked me to go online and see that Rodney had passed on. However I immediately thought of the great hunting trips to Utah he had with us.. his disappearing deer, falling out of the back of his truck,. 15 shots to hit the deer. My thoughts are with you guys. Take care of each other.
