If Tears Could Be a Stairway

If tears could build stairways and memories were a lane. I would walk right up to Heaven to bring you home again. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye. You were gone before I knew and only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you no one will ever know

Vernon the Williams family and I all attended church at Olivet in Inglewood. I've known Vernon since childhood and to find him and Ray on facebook was great! He often sent me notes to let me know he was thinking of me and well wishes for my birthday. I spoke to other Olivet members when learning of his passing and we were planning to try to make it out to his service. Just know our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends whom share in his loss. Although we didn't get to meet again on earth I'm sure we will in Heaven.
Rest Well my Olivet brother,
