May The Road
Rise Up To Meet You


May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

God Bless you fly high with angels

There r NO words that could compfort u or ease the pain u feel.. U all became family to me at a time when I needed u most.. I grew to LOVE my wild, crazy, mischevious, rambunctious, sometimes annoying younger siblings yet as an adult I've grown to cherish such precious memories made back then... Heaven received a special Angel but those of us here will miss the joy that his carefree spirit brought into our lives... I LOVE U ALL SOOO MUCH and I wish I could ease the heartache and take away ur tears...
FLY HIGH OUR GAURDIAN ANGEL AND PLEASE WATCH OVER US UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.. THE BIBLE SAYS "FROM DUST TO DUST" WE R ALL JUST "DUST IN THE WIND" (Kansas)
