IN STACY'S MEMORY


In our hearts your memory lingers,

Sweetly tender, fond and true,
There is not a day, dear Brother
That we do not think of you.

When a loved one becomes a memory

That memory becomes a treasure.

Be Still My Soul Hymn
Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
To guide the future, as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,
And all is darkened in the vale of tears,
Then shalt thou better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
Be still, my soul: thy Jesus can repay
From His own fullness all He takes away.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord.
When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past
All safe and bless├Ęd we shall meet at last.

Be still, my soul: begin the song of praise
On earth, be leaving, to Thy Lord on high;
Acknowledge Him in all thy words and ways,
So shall He view thee with a well pleased eye.
Be still, my soul: the Sun of life divine
Through passing clouds shall but more brightly shine.

...For the Lamb who left this earth on the 24th. Hold him close, Shepherd.


The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' 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 annointest 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 forever.
John 3:16



When the clouds part and a ray of sun shines through

We look to the sky; and think of you.
You see our tears and feel our ache
We breathe you in with each breath we take
There is no need to miss, what is not gone
For you are right here, where you belong.

You are the suns warmth on our face
Guiding us through this dark place
You are the whisper of the wind through the night.
That gentle sparkle in a stars light.

You are the colours of the rainbow after a summers rain
Dazzling, vivid colours, nothing could ever tame
You are the elegance found after a first snow
That small, beautiful,blinding glow

You made your own path from the start
And we continue to carry your footprints on our heart
When we stop to think of all we miss
Look around and think of this
Something so special and rare could never fade and
That is how we know you stayed
Because when the clouds part and that ray of sun shines through
We will smile, knowing that glimmer is you.
