Dear Sandra:
A close friend of mine gave me a card with this Native American Prayer when my dad past away, and I pray the words will bring you comfort. The prayer goes like this:

I give you this one thought to keep –
I am with you still – I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning’s hush

I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone –
I am with you still – in each new dawn.

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 autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there. I did not die.
from Maria and family

It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem hard right now,it will be the memories
of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smilesback again.

With Loving Memories

Dear Sandra:
Both of our families we meet when we arrived in Hamilton, Canada. We used to play together. I am so sad to hear that he passed away so suddenly. You are all in my thoughts and I will miss him dearly. My family sends condolences to everyone. I am Choni’s sister and Rose’s aunt, (Rose – Hector’s fiancée).

Suddenly I left you all my love ones
But within your sorrow, rejoice for me
Because I am now seating beside my Father, God
Where peace, love and tranquility surround me
I will pray for you all, my love ones
So that my passing will not leave you all full of distress
But gradually and with God’s love, you all will find again happiness
And remember all our memories filled with love
So that the wait will not be extensive
Cause as God promised
We soon be reunited

Sandra & family –

Words cannot express what your heart feels right now. I pray that the grief and pain of today be replaced with the joy of God who truly loves you. May he hold you gently in his arms as you walk through this.

God’s peace

Rose and Hector San Martin - Oct 9, 2009

If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We’d pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and You.
A thousand words can’t bring you back we know because we’ve tried…
Neither will a thousand tears we know because we’ve cried…
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too…
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.

Missing you more as each day passes. You will always be in our hearts.
