Carolyn and family ~ I am so very sorry; there are no words that can take away the pain and loss. Our Lord has welcomed another angel home. I hope this poem and this Bible verse might bring you some comfort.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith..........II Timothy 4:7

An Empty House

It’s not as if I’m going,
to an empty house, you see.
I know I’m going up there,
with my other family.

I want no tears or crying.
I want to see you smile.
Just stay with me and hold my hand
as I walk that last long mile.

My life’s been good and filled with love,
just see how I’ve been blessed.
I’ve seen a lot and done a lot,
I’ve had the very best.

Why, look around and you will see,
as all of you are here
that no one could have asked for more ~
you’re all so very dear.

No, it’s not an empty house,
this place I’m traveling to,
I’m just arriving sooner,
than any one of you.
-- Patti Koch ‘99

With my deepest sympathy to you and yours..............

I did not know this, but Ruth held a special place in my heart. I worked for her at Cupid’s 1985-1989ish. I had run into her in a post office in Yukon a few years back and wished we had more time to catch up. Learned so much from her.
