IN MEMORY OF DAVE - TOFFEEMAN - ONCEABLUE - DIEHARD EVERTON SUPPORTER Dave, You came into my life so unexpectedly though a friend when I was in a mess with my PC and there you stayed and you came into my heart unexpectedly too and here you will remain forever. You were my Mentor, my supporter, my sounding board, my positive thinker, 'my chill' and my 'behave'. You cracked me up at times, you were so very funny. You shared my quirky, silly sense of humour, my music, poems and my love for animals and birds. You understood my needs and sent me silly parcels full of chocolate hobnob biscuits, knowing that it was the 'thought' with me. We planned for next year, we were going to meet and eat Curry in Birmingham and do the Shewsbury Flower Show together. You shared 'Spikey' with me and was his 'Dad', also Eartha, she was your surrogate 'Skippy', we had such fun planning for things,I wanted you to meet my Son, you would have got on so very well, 'no rush' you said, 'we have all the time in the world' you said, but it was not to be, they snatched it from our grasp and spoiled it for us. Dave, I never got the chance to tell you how much I love you, how the first early morning email and the final evening email changed my life for me, we shared elevenses, lunches, dinners, we ranted on about war, cruelty, the government, the changes in our world today, our likes and dislikes, what we would do about it all and nobody on this earth knows how I shall miss that, I would give anything I have to have you back here and call me 'dirty stop out' when I was late home and missed our late night chats!!! There will be no 'you' there when I first log on and no 'you' there when I log off. At the moment I cannot think of my life without you, it hurts too much, I feel as if my heart is ripped out and yet I need to keep it to hold you in there. Sleep well 'bestest' friend, I will always love you and cherish the time we had together. So many years with those who didn't understand me and such a little time with someone who did. My love always, Pam
DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP By Mary E. Frye 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 softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain. I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush. I am in the graceful rush of beautiful birds in circling flight. I am the star shine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom; I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing; I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there; I did not die.
A Letter From Heaven First of all... To let you know, that I arrived Okay. I'm writing this from Heaven, here I dwell with God above. Here there are no tears of sadness; here is just eternal Love. Please, do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night. The day I had to leave you when my time on earth was through, God picked me up and Hugged me, and He said, "I welcome you. It's good to have you back again. You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family, they'll be here later on. I need you here so badly, you're a big part of my Plan. There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man." God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do, and foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. For when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight, God and I are close to you....in the middle of the night. When you think about my life on earth, and all those loving years, because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all the things that God has planned, but if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But this one is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er, I'm closer to you now, my Loves, than I ever was before. There are many rocky roads ahead of you, and many hills to climb; but together we can do it taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy, and I'd like it for you too; that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody, who's in sorrow or in pain' then you can say to God at night.... "my day was not in vain." Now I am contented...that my lifetime was worthwhile; knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile. So, if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low; just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go. When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind. And when it's time for you to go... from that body to be Free; remember you're not going... you are coming here to Me. Till We Meet Again All My Love
