We can all feel honored to belong to a family with such rich heritage with God at the center. We have all lost loved ones that we wish we could see again, but take comfort that "When Tomorrow Starts Without Them", by knowing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be with them again. Maybe even "Cooking with Harmony".

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 as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
It seemed impossible, that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we use to share, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that this could never be,
For emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
For everytime you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
