A Cowboy's Prayer......

I've been a long time coming, Lord,
But now, I'm riding in.
I see those gates just shining,
Where no pain is felt within.

I heard the angels singing, Lord,
When they came to escort me.
They let me ride my favorite horse
On in to eternity.

I'm thankful for my days on earth,
And my friends & family there below.
They knew quite well my time had come,
But they grieved to see me go.

I ask that you give them comfort, Lord,
For I'm in a better place.
Please let them know that I rest in peace,
Thanks to your matchless grace.

Please let them know that I love them, Lord,
And all fear has been put aside.
I will wait for a grand reunion,
When they, too, cross the Great Divide.

Godspeed DeWane.....

Re-post:

Dewane was born on June 25, 1934, in Hillsboro, to Ben and Emma (Rempel) Ewert. He grew up on a farm in rural Marion County, Kansas. He met Twila Schumacher in Hays and they were married on June 1, 1957. They had five children: May, Cindy, Doug, Craig and Mike. Then they divorced. I don’t remember the date, just that I was in second or third grade, 8 years old. Cindy was 7, Doug was 4, Craig was 3, and Mike was 1. Life continued and now there’s not only five children from that union but 16 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. I share these details as none of them are in his obituary. This obituary was written by May Schumacher. Thank you Aunt Cindy and May, Reposted by a biological Grandchild of Dewane.

I have known DeWane for over 24 yrs when I worked for State Farm Claims. He was such a sweet, sweet man! I will miss seeing him at his office in Rose Hill, I will especially miss his sweet laugh and sweet smile. He was a great man! Keep riding the trail DeWane!

Back in the "olden days" Susan Vick came to work at the office while I was working for DeWane. At that time we could only wear dresses or skirts. Susan talked DeWane into letting us wear pants to the office. I will always remember that. We sure appreciated Susan since it was so cold. Other good memories for me when he took us to Crown Uptown for Christmas. Somethings you never forget...He will be missed.
