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:
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earthís shadows,
Pray to trust Our Fatherís Will.
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 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
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
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
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.
PRAYER # 115
