To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Jean, Karen & Jeff,
There are very few people that have touched as many people's lives as Guy. As a Sunday school teacher and a handy man. He was always behind the scenes doing whatever needed to be done without expecting or wanting recognition. I believe he is getting his recognition now.
I will always remember shaking his "rough" (from working) hands. What a blessing he was to our family. You have our prayers.

Guy was a wonderful fellow, wonderful friend and family man. He will be missed by all but now he is looking to be with His Lord and eventually back in the arms of his family. He has left a great legacey for his family and friends and the result of his life will leave an inheritance for years to come. His life will not be forgotten but will ring true through many generations. My heart goes to all those left behind at this time, God is with you to comfort you and you will charish his memory always. The Lord Bless you and Keep you, The Lord make his face to shine upon you and give you peace and be gracious unto you. Amen. Jo Barnes Torrisi

I've only been a member of the church less than a year, but once you meet Guy and talk to him it seems like you've known him for years. You just know he is a good man and would do anything for you if he could. I always enjoy seeing him at the door and saying good morning to him. I know I will miss him as everyone at church will. You and your family are in my prayers. God bless. Karl, Debbie, and Kristi Long

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord

Jean,Karen,Jeff and Family, Heaven just became more precious to us all. I am so thankful that Guy answered God's greatest call , to that of a faithful servant. The thousands of lives he has affected both directly and indirectly of decades serving his Savior and Church. I am one of hundreds of kids who were influenced by him. May the Holy Spirit comfort you, as we look forward to the time we will see him again. Billy (Skip) Jeffrey Associate Pastor Grace Baptist Church Decatur Texas
