In Loving Memory of Paul Hunt

Me and my dear friend Karen

In loving memory of Paul Hunt

You will live on forever in our hearts

Me and my dear friend Karen celebrating her birthday at our home a couple of summers ago.

I am here for you my dear and precious friend the way you have always
been here for me
I will never forget your love and kindness after Robbie died
You held my hand and stayed with Justin and I and helped ease my extreme suffering
I will do the same for you today tomorrow always♥

And a thousand other friends likewise I will always be there for you
as you have been for me
You know who you are♥
I thank you

Our love and prayers always and we shall see you on Saturday.

The Next Place by Warren Hanson

The next place that I go
will be as peaceful and familiar
as a sleepy summer Sunday
and a sweet, untroubled mind.

And yet….it won’t be anything like any place I’ve ever been…
or seen…or dreamed of
in the place I leave behind.

I won’t know where I’m going,
and I won’t know where I’ve been
as I tumble through the always
and look back toward the when.

I’ll glide beyond the rainbows.
I’ll drift above the sky.
I’ll fly into the wonder,
without ever wondering why.

I won’t remember getting there.
Somehow I’ll just arrive.
But I’ll know that I belong there
and will feel much more alive
than I have ever felt before.
I will be absolutely free of the things that I held onto
that were holding onto me.

The next place that I go
will be so quiet and so still
that the whispered song of sweet belonging will rise up to fill
the listening sky with joyful silence, and with unheard harmonies
of music made by no one playing,
like a hush upon a breeze.

There will be no room for darkness in that place of living light.
Where an ever-dawning morning pushes back the dying night.
The very air will fill with brilliance, as the brightly shining sun
and the moon and half a million stars are married into one.

The next place that I go
Won’t really be a place at all.
There won’t be any seasons—winter, summer, spring or fall—
Nor a Monday,
Nor a Friday,
Nor December,
Nor July.
And the seconds will be standing still…
while the hours hurry by.

I will not be a boy
or girl,
a woman
or a man.
I’ll simply be just,
simply me.
No worse or better than.

My skin will not be dark or light.
I won’t be fat or tall.
The body I once lived in
won’t be part of me at all.

I will finally be perfect.
I will be without a flaw.
I will never make one more mistake,
or break the smallest law.

And the me that was impatient,
or was angry or unkind,
will simply be a memory.
The me I left behind.

I will travel empty-handed.
There is not one single thing
I have collected in my life
that I would ever want to bring
The love of those who loved me,
and the warmth of those who cared.
The happiness and memories
and magic that we shared.

Though I will know the joy of solitude…
I’ll never be alone.
I’ll be embraced
by all the family and friends
I’ve ever known.
Although I might not see their faces,
all our hearts will beat as one,
and the circle of our spirits
Will shine brighter than the sun.

remember Rev. Palmer’s name from St. Mark’s

I want to say he was before Rev. Godden?

I kind of remember Karen’s name and his face looks familiar. I wouldn’t have put the name and face together though.

Sorry to hear about her husband. That is way too young, and now she will be a widow at a very young age as well.

One of my friends at work was with a guy from work her as well and Wally was about 20 years older than her.

He died suddenly at 63 in 2002 so he left her a widow at around 42/43

Awful for both sides, that’s for sure.

Hi Jeanne

Ah, so many going too soon, too young. My sympathy to you on behalf of your friend, Karen. Let us always treasure our loved ones.

And another thought...
"What I do with today is very important because I will be exchanging a day of my life for it."

Love you, my friend!
