If tears could build a stairwell

and memories were a lane,

I would walk right up to Heaven

and bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken,

no time to say good-bye...

You were gone before I knew it,

and only God knows why.

My heart still aches in sadness

and secret tears still flow,

What it means to lose you

no one will ever know.


PRAYER # 101

God looked around His garden

And found an empty place.

He then looked down upon the earth

And saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you

And lifted you to rest.

Godís garden must be beautiful

He always takes the best.

He saw the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb,

So He closed your weary eyelids

And whispered "Peace be thine".

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didnít go alone,

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.


PRAYER # 102

I am home in Heaven, dear ones:
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this Everlasting Light.
All the pain and grief are over!
Every restless yearning past;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely Home in Heaven at last.
Dear one, do not grieve so sorely,

For I love you dearly still;

Try to look beyond earthís shadows,

Pray to trust Our Fatherís Will.
When your work is completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh! the rapture of that meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come.


PRAYER # 103



The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not

want. He maketh me to lie down in

green pastures; he leadeth me beside

the still water. He restoreth my soul;

he leadeth me in the paths of

righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley

of the shadow of death, I will fear no

evil; for thou art with me; thy rod

and thy staff they comfort me. Thou

preparest a table before me in the

presence of mine enemies: thou

anointest my head with oil; my cup

runneth over. Surely goodness and

mercy shall follow me all the days

of my life: and I will dwell in the

house of the Lord for ever.


PRAYER # 104

We sat beside your bedside,

Our hearts were crushed and sore;

We did our best to the end,

'Til we could do no more.

In tears we watched you sinking,

We watched you fade away;

And though our hearts were breaking,

We knew you could not stay.

You left behind some aching hearts,

That loved you most sincere;

We never shall and never will

Forget you Mother[Father] dear.


PRAYER # 105

May you always walk in sunshine and

God's love around you flow, for the

happiness you gave us, no one will

ever know, it broke our hearts to lose

you, but you did not go alone, a part

of us went with you, the day God

called you home.

A million times we've needed you.

A million times we've cried.

If love could only have saved you.

You never would have died.

The Lord be with you

And May You Rest in Peace.



PRAYER # 106



Should you go first and I remain,

to walk the road alone,

Iíll live in memories garden, dear,

with happy days weíve known.

In spring Iíll wait for roses red,

when faded, the lilacs blue.

In early fall when brown leaves fall,

Iíll catch a glimpse of you.

Iíll hear your voice, Iíll see your

smile, tho blindly I may grope,

The memory of your helping hand

will buoy me on with hope.

Should you go first and I remain,

one thing Iíll have you do:

Walk slowly down that long long

path, for soon Iíll follow you.

I want to know each step you take,

So I may take the same.

For someday down that lonely road,

youíll hear me call your name.


PRAYER # 107

When I must leave you for a

little while - please do not grieve

and hug your sorrow to you

through the years.

But start out bravely with a

gallant smile; And for my sake

and in my name, live on and do

all things the same.

Feed not your loneliness on

empty days, but fill each

waking hour in useful ways.

Reach out your hand in comfort

and in cheer, and I in turn

will comfort you and hold you near;

And never, never be afraid to die,

For I am waiting for you in the sky!


PRAYER # 108

You toiled so hard for those

you loved.

You said goodbye to none,

Your spirit flew before we knew,

Your work on earth was done.

We miss you now,

our hearts are sore,

As time goes by we miss you more.

Your loving smile, your gentle face:

No one can fill your vacant place.

Your life was love and labor.

Your love for your family true.

You did the best for all of us.

We will always remember you.


PRAYER # 109



Your gentle face and patient smile.

With sadness we recall

You had a kindly word for each

And died beloved by all.

The voice is mute and stilled

the heart

That loved us well and true.

Ah, bitter was the trial to part

From one so good as you.

You are not forgotten loved one

Nor will you ever be

As long as life and memory last

We will remember thee.

We miss you now, our hearts

are sore,

As time goes by we miss you more,

Your loving smile, your gentle face

No one can fill your vacant place.


PRAYER # 110

You can only have one mother

Patient, kind and true;

No other friend in all the world,

Will be the same to you.

When other friends forsake you,

To mother you will return,

For all her loving kindness,

She asks nothing in return.

As we look upon her picture,

Sweet memories we recall,

Of a face so full of sunshine,

And a smile for one and all.

Sweet Jesus, take this message,

To our dear mother up above;

Tell her how we miss her,

And give her all our love.


PRAYER # 111

God needed an angel in Heaven

To stand at the Saviorís feet;

His choice must be the rarest

A lily pure and sweet.

He gazed upon the mighty throng

Then stopped and picked the best,

Our child was His chosen one

With Jesus sheís[heís] now at rest.


PRAYER # 112



O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints,

your love for God and Charity for His

creatures, made you worthy, when on

earth, to possess miraculous powers.

Miracles waited on your word, which you

were ever ready to speak for those in

trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this

thought, I implore of you to obtain for

me (request). The answer to my prayer

may require a miracle, even so, you are

the Saint of Miracles. O gentle and

loving St. Anthony, whose heart was

ever full of human sympathy, whisper

my petition into the ears of the

Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be

folded in your arms; and the gratitude

of my heart will ever be yours.


PRAYER # 113

O glorious St. Anthony, safe refuge

of the afflicted and distressed. Who

by miraculous revelation has directed

all those who seek aid to come to

Thy altar with the promise that

whosoever visits it for nine

consecutive Tuesdays, and there

piously invokes Thee, will feel the

power of Thy intercession. I, a poor

sinner, encouraged by this promise,

come to Thee, O powerful Saint,

and with a firm hope I implore Thy

aid, Thy protection, Thy counsel and

Thy blessing. Obtain for me, I beseech

Thee, my request in this necessity.

But if it should be opposed to the

will of God and the welfare of my soul,

obtain for me such other graces as

shall be conducive of my salvation.

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.


PRAYER # 127

Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow;

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain;

I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the

morning's hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft star that shines

at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.

I am not there; I did not die.


PRAYER # 115
