Something Beautiful Remains

The tide recedes but leaves behind

Bright seashells on the sand.

The sun goes down, but gentle

Warmth still lingers on the land.

The music stops, and yet it echoes

On in sweet refrains….

For every joy that passes,

Something beautiful remains.

In Memory of Rex Morris


If every tear we shed for you

Became a star above,

You’d stroll in Angel’s Garden

Lit by everlasting love.

You are our hero, Dad

You’re our secure foundation.

When we think of you, we’re filled with love

And fond appreciation.

You make us feel protected

We’re sheltered by your care.

You’re always our true friend, and Dad

When we need you you’re always there.


Love always,

Your Children and Grandchildren

Sarah’s Deal’s workshop: directions to register for the Sarah’s Deals workshop on Februay 11 were not correct in last week’s Post. The workshop will feature Shopping Tips 101 from noon to 2 p.m., and from 2-4 p.m. will cover creating a stockpile and bulk cooking tips. To register for the event, go to http://www.sarahsdeals.net, click on “Start Here,” and then on “Coupon classes.”

Location of memorial: Wayne Price wrote us to let us know that he gave us the wrong location last week for the granite memorial that was created to honor his brother, Jack Price, and three others from Jack’s OCS class that died in Viet Nam. It is in Fort Benning, Georgia, not Fort Sheridan. “I’m very sorry for the error,” said Wayne.

Delores and Vernon Eldred

When God walked through the Garden of Life, on December 21st and 22nd 2010, He saw two mature beautiful flowers. God had been nurturing these flowers since they were buds, in 1918 and 1919. God knew they had weathered many storms and had grown toward the sunlight of His love. God called to them, “Delores and Vernon, I want you to be a part of My heavenly kingdom, where joy and beauty can never fade.” Each one answered, “Yes, Lord, take me.”
