        Tonight I attended the funeral of my daughters childhood friend.

        Spike was only 20 when he was walking along the freeway, which is still a mystery, and was struck by a semi.

        It was the saddest funeral, especially when everyone was filing out of the church a group of about 30 of his buddies went to the front of the church, huddled with arms around each other to pay tribute in front of the 80X10 photo and Spike's ashes.  Several boys kissed their 2 fingers and touched their fingers to the photo.

        If anyone is religious at all..... a prayer for Spike would be appreciated.

        My prayers are with you and yours Gabby.  This poem always comforted me when my mom passed, and I want to share it with you.


        The Everlasting Light

        Those we love must someday
        pass beyond our present sight . . .
        Must leave us and the world we know
        without their radiant light.
        But we know that like a candle,
        their lovely light will shine
        to brighten up another place
        more perfect . . . more divine.
        And in the realm of Heaven,
        where they shine
        so warm and so bright,
        our loved ones live forevermore
        in God’s eternal light

        This for you and your daughter, I saw it this morning and I said a prayer for Spike,-
         
        When 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 when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,

        that an Angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand,

        and said my place was ready, in heaven far above,

        and that I'd have to leave behind, all those I dearly love.

        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 for life on earth is past, but here it 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.

        "When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, 

        for every time you think of me, I'm right here, in your heart. "

        Thank you all so much for your kind words of support!

        I can't believe how hard this is hitting me.

        The tears started as I read your posts and the floodgates opened when I read Debra's poem. I'm going to share that one with Spike's mom.

        Thank You.....truly.  I've never met one of you in person but you all are a strength when someone needs a shoulder.  I'm very grateful.
