Remember Me
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in your every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter,
the smiles, all the good times,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
Although my leaving caused you pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me some relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because I will remember you all and look down with a smile.
Understand, in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of you.

Tim Moten and the Mott family, I want to send my heartfelt condolences. May you find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father cares for you and will comfort you during this time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4; 2Thessalonians 2:16,17) Jesus gave us a wonderful hope that we may see our loved ones again when he said at John 5:28,29 that there will be a resurrection. May we keep our eyes on the promises of our Heavenly Father who promised that one day no one will say I am sick, (Isaiah 33:24) and that all our pain, sorrow and even death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) Many prayers are with the family. May you have peace
