How Great Thou Art
One of Jim's favorite Hymns
To Canaan's land I'm
on my way,
Where the soul of man never dies;
My darkest night will turn to day,
Where the soul of man never dies.
Dear friends, there'll be no sad farewells,
There'll be no tear-dimmed eyes,
Where all is peace and joy and love,
And the soul of man never dies.
~Wm M. Golden~
Jim I know you
have walked this earth and have seen much of the
grandeur that the Lord has provided for us,
The shinning stars, the rolling thunder, the forest glen, the mountains and
and the babbling brooks.
I also know you have seen some of the worst that mankind could
offer. And Again I want to thank you for your service
to your country!!
Now I am sure you look
upon the Greatness of the Lord Himself!!
And you must be singing with the Angels in Humble adoration
HOW GREAT THOU ART!!!
Jim, but there is on
more verse to that song!
When Christ Shall Come with Shouts of Acclamation!
And take Me home.
What joy shall fill my heart!
If I don't get
home before then look for me on that great day
Then in Chorus we can sing together
HOW GREAT THOU ART!
So I'll not say good
bye, but I will say
Till We Meet Again Dear Friend!
Jim you will be missed greatly
Eileen and family, I
don't know where to begin nor where
end. I feel I know you all first hand! Eileen, maybe I should
have hugged you both a bit harder four years ago and
I sure wish I could do so now! Eileen, just know my heart
goes out to you and I wish there was a way
I could ease your pain but I can't!
Eileen, I can tell you this and I am not sure if it will help
or not, but the last time I talked to Jim,
he said you where his Angel!
To Jim Jr. ,Eileen, Joe and
families, Jim was so very proud of you all!!
I always loved to hear the stories he had to tell about the adventures
and hard times in life. Jim never had a harsh word to say about
anyone of you and all I ever heard was praise.
I wish I could be
there for you as well !
And I wish I had the magic words that could
make all of this sorrow vanish!
Best I can do is say is he no longer suffers
and is resting in peace.
My Deepest and Most Heartfelt Sympathies
