IMG_4601.JPGJames Raymond White
(May 8, 1932 – September 21, 2012)

Raymond, I can’t believe That it has been 2 years since you joined The Lord in Heaven.

Remembering you on this day, comforted by so many wonderful memories that you made for me as I grew up. You were my big brother and I loved you and I miss you. If I ever needed to know how to do something to my house or car or lawn, all I had to do was ask Raymond. Then you not only helped me figure out how but came almost immediately to help me do it! You did that for my whole family just as you did for your family. You were one of a kind as far as I’m concerned and again, I have to say, Raymond White, we all love you and miss you so much!

The Rose Beyond the Wall
A Poem by A. L. Frin
k

Near a shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God’s free light,
Watered and fed by the morning dew,
Shedding it’s sweetness day and night.

As it grew and blossomed fair and tall,
Slowly rising to loftier height,
It came to a crevice in the wall
Through which there shone a beam of light.

Onward it crept with added strength
With never a thought of fear or pride,
It followed the light through the crevice’s length
And unfolded itself on the other side.

The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before,
And it lost itself in beauties new,
Breathing it’s fragrance more and more.

Shall claim of death cause us to grieve
And make our courage faint and fall?
Nay! Let us faith and hope receive–
The rose still grows beyond the wall,

Scattering fragrance far and wide
Just as it did in days of yore,
Just as it did on the other side,
Just as it will forever-more.


Your memory will live on in our hearts forever.

Your Sister-In-Law,
Judy Webb Mays
