When you say you're praying for me...........

I think of this song and I can imagine that heaven is
hearing my name and how much I'm hurting! To know that God is
listening to your prayers helps me to hold on!
Thank you for lifting me and Erynn up in prayer along with our hurting families. It means so much!

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I and you are you

Whatever we were to each other

That we are still

Call me by my old familiar name

Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Put no difference into your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow

Laugh as we always laughed

At the little jokes we always enjoyed together

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort

Without the ghost of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant

It is the same as it ever was

There is absolute unbroken continuity

What is death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind

Because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you for an interval

Somewhere very near

Just around the corner

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost

One brief moment and all will be as it was before

How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland, 1847-1918, Canon of St Paul's Cathedral

What a beautiful song. I think of you and Erynn every day and what you have been through. The both of you have reminded me to really enjoy every day because you never know what tomorrow will bring. The stories the both of you tell of B and P are amazing. While I never met either of them, I can tell what strong loving husbands and fathers they were, and I hope I have that same relationship that they had together with my own children.

What a powerfully written and beautiful song! I pray daily for you and Erynn and that your strength rest fully in the Lord. May He hear our prayers and lift you up!

Beautiful song - gave me goosebumps (in a good way). Thank you for sharing it. And I WILL keep all the Rooneys in my prayers-- you, Colin, Erynn and childen and Sean and Jana as they are about to be married and embark on their futures together.
