Grandpa

Charles Jarrell, 5/12/1990 – written the day after he passed, at home, following heart surgery & complications

He was sitting in his easy chair
a favorite place to be
while the angels stood nearby
watching quietly

They waited in the corner
’til he was all alone
then carefully they took his hands
and led him gently home

Now he’s walking with his Lord
beside the crystal sea
where the Son of God shines bright as day
throughout eternity

The lives he touched are un-numbered
like grains of sand along the shore
and among the many who love him
he lives on forever more

Go Peacefully

Alonzo (Bo) Waller, 7/7/1987 – written the night before he passed, after a very rough struggle with cancer and it’s intense pains

Go peacefully, among angel’s wings
while here below the small birds sing
Leave all your burdens of life behind
as you take your final Heavenward climb

Close your eyes in eternal rest
amid the gentle quietness
As flowers bloom and small birds sing
Go peacefully, among angel’s wings
