I'm Everywhere

Please don't mourn for me I'm still here,
though you don't see I'm right by your side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay
My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart
I'll never wander out of your sight
I'm the brightest star on a summer night
I'll never be beyond your reach
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond
The clear cool water in a quiet pond
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in spring
The first warm raindrop that April will bring
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine
When you start thinking there's no one to love you
You can talk to me through the Lord above you
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face
Just look for me, I'm everyplace...
May God Bless You

The Most Fun Mother / Debbie Dooley (daughter)
I am so thankful for our trips to Florida.  You were always so much fun!  I am so lucky to have had a mother I could talk to about anything.  You were so strong, so patient and so wise.  You knew how to handle every problem we ever ask you about.  I just wish you were here to enjoy Jack, Virginia and Eleanor with us.  I miss you everyday!

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than Ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of much grief and love." Close

Little brown haired lady / Larry Dooley (Son in law)
The first time I saw her I looked at her size and features with that mysterious smile and thought to myself this little lady reminds me of a "pixie". In many ways she was a pixie. She had that twinkle in her eyes that made you wonder what she was thinking. Her witty comments and the way she had of looking at you when reacting to someone's actions or words that she found odd was hilarious.

The things that made her "TOTE" were her love of dancing, living life to the fullest, always quick with the Quip and most of all her love of "The Girls". I am so blessed to have been in her life and to spent time with her for breakfast in the duckblind !

WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE ? ------- I MISS HER !!! Close

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give to our children.
One of these is roots.
The other is wings.
I know my Sister gave her children all this and more.  Love Fran Close

I think about you every day.  Some days I smile, some days I cry, and some days I do both.  You have no idea the impact you made on my life.  I wish my girls would have had the moment with you that I did.  I know that you are in a better place, but I would love to hear your shoes click across the floor, have to "speak up" so you could hear me, talk on the phone for hours, or just simply sit near you.  I miss you terribly & love you so very much!

Can't wait to see you! / Jamie Fox (Granddaughter)
When I think about my grandmother...my best friend, there are specific foods that always come to mind.  You all know how much she "loved" food, so isn't it ironic that that is what I think of.  When I was young & she would watch me when Mom was @ work, she always made salmon croquettes, mac & cheese (from a box), and green peas.  Then we always had chocolate pudding for dessert.  Of course it was just a handful of each, so you were starving after you ate.  :o)  Xoxo Close

I love her and I miss her very much and one day I might get out my telescope and watch her in the stars.  When I go to her grave I will put a stuffed animal rabbit there.  Ok I'm finished and just remember Dd that Toe will always be in your heart.  From ,  Jacob Close

I miss Tote.  I will give her a rabbit.  I will give her a present.  I will send her a post card.  I love her.  I will give her a star.  I will give her a bed.  I will give her a stuffed animal.  I will give her a lamp if she gets scared.  I will give her a picture and a candle. 
I still use Tote soap.  I look up at the stars at night and see you.  I love her and I miss her.   She did a lot of great things with me.    Love,  Tayler

I'm Free / Her Girls
Don't grieve for me, for now I am free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call.
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
O Yes these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full.  I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now.  He set me free. Close

Safely Home / Her Girls
            I am home in heaven, dear ones.
            Oh, so happy and so bright!
            There is a perfect joy and beauty
            In the everlasting light.
            All the pain and grief is over,
            Ever restless tossing passed;
            I am now at peace forever,
            Safely home in heaven at last.
            There is work still waiting for you,
            So you must not idly stand,
            Do it now, while life remaineth-
            You shall rest in God's own land.
            When that work is all completed.
            He will gently call you Home;
            Oh, the rapture of that meeting
            Oh, the joy to see you come!

If I Could / Her Girls
            If I could, I'd write for you a rainbow
            And splash it with all the colors of God
            And hang it in the window of your being
            So that each new God's morning
            Your eyes would open first
            To Hope and Promise.
            If I could, I'd wipe away your tears
            And hold you close forever in shalom.
            But God never promised
            I could write a rainbow,
            Never promised I could suffer for you,
            Only promised that I could love you.
            That I do.
