If Only

If only we could see the splendour of the land
To which our loved ones are called from you and me
We'd understand

If only we could hear the welcome they receive
From old familiar voices all so dear
We would not grieve

If only we could know the reason why they went
We'd smile and wipe away the tears that flow
And wait content.

Hello Melinda,

This is simply a quick note to say Hi and I LOVE your picture with your fur babies!!!

I don't visit this site as often as I would like (work obligations). However when I do, I bounce around my 'friend list' to visit their love ones.

Best regards,

RE: Thank you!
Hi again Melinda!
I guess it's my turn to apologize now. I haven't checked my findagrave page in a while (I had finals in school, and then all the busyness of summer kind of rushed in at one time) and I totally forgot to reply to you.
Yeah, findagrave has done that to me before; forgotten to remind me that I had a message. Don't worry about it. :)
It is very sad. I've had a lot of young deaths in my family just because of war or the carelessness of someone else.
I paid a visit to your dad and uncle today; I hadn't visited their memorials in a while.
Thanks so much for visiting my memorials so often; it really does mean a lot.
Take care. :)

Hello Melinda.....
I just wanted to say "Thank You" for taking the time to visit Sgt. Manno, and helping me to keep his memory alive.
You have my deepest condolences on the loss of your mom, dad and brother...I am very sorry. I will keep you in my prayers.
God bless you and yours, and have a very
safe and happy upcoming week.

RE: Thank you!
Oh, I loved visiting your father. He sounds like such an interesting character; I hadn't visited him in a while and I laughed at the story all over again. That's what you call good memories.
Yeah, it's very sad. Roy was very sweet and really loved everybody. I found your uncle and left him a flower; it's such a shame. He looks so happy and alive in his pictures; it made me want to cry.

Thank you!
Hi Melinda! Thanks so much for all of your visits to my loved ones; especially your heartfelt token to Roy. It means so much to me.
