In the rising of the sun and its going down,
We remember them.

In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,
We will remember them.

In the opening buds and in the rebirth of spring,
We remember them.

In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer,
We remember them.

In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn,
We remember them.

In the beginning of the year and when it ends,
We will remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength,
We will remember them.

When we are lost and are sick of heart,
We remember them.

When we have Joys we yearn to share,
We remember them.

So long as we live, they too shall live,
For they are now a part of us,
As we remember them.

Well, I checked and this post is getting a lot of readers, just no one feels like commenting.

Makes me feel better.

The candlelighting ceremony really moved me. I'm at home now, while I worked Win and Heather went up to the cemetery. I miss them.

The prayer is very touching. I cam back just to read it again.

One of the most memorable experiences I have had, was at a Christmas Eve, Midnight Mass at a Luthren Church, they had candles and a beautiful memorial. It was captivating.

I am sure you do remember them my friend, and because of your courage. So do I.

No words... just heartache and hope from one parent to another. It is a beautiful prayer.

I just got here from 63days and I am in tears for you. As a parent myself I cannot even begin to IMAGINE losing 3 children, let alone 2 within a month of eachother. If you don't mind my asking what did you lose your precious angels to? God Bless you and your family!
