January 13th, 1921 - October 2nd, 2001

Loving husband of Gay,
Father of Nancy Brown and Kathryn Knight-Jellilian.
Grandfather of Alexander,
Olivia and Annaliese.
Brother-in-law to Marie,  Jack & Sue.
Dear friend of Trisha, Mark, Pam & Katelyn.
He was loved by all and is missed very much.

 When someone we love becomes a memory,
that memory becomes a treasure !

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 diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autum's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush;
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circles flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand on my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.


God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be

So He closed his arms around you

And Whispered "Come to Me"

You do not deserve what you went through

And so He gave you rest

God's Garden must be beautiful

For He only takes the best

In time we saw you sinking

We watched you fade away

Our hearts were almost broken

You fought so hard to stay

But when we saw you sleeping

So Peacefully from pain

We could not wish you back

To suffer that again

If you had spoken before you died

These are the words you'd have replied

"Weep not for me but courage take

And love one another for my sake"

To where you are


Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear 

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be 
That you are mine
Forever love 
And you are watching over me from up above 

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight 
To see you smile
If only for awhile
to know you're there
A breath aways, not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen
As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me

Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above
And I believe 
That angel breathe
And that love will live on and never leave 

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath aways not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath aways not far
To where you are

Because You Love Me

You were my friend when I was weak,
You were my voice when I couldn't speak,
You were my eyes when I couldn't see,
You saw the best there was in me.
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach,
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am because you loved me.....

Song by Celine Dion

Love touches two lives so sweetly
warms them with a gentle joy...
makes them one completely.

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me

If tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of  me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But if tomorrow starts without  me,
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my  name,
And took me by the hand.
He said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live  for,
So much left yet to do.
It seemed almost  impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you."
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?
