SMITH
-In loving memory of a loving husband, John R. SMITH, who passed away on January 21 1996.
A million times we've needed you,
A million times we have cried,
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
For in our hearts you hold a place,
No one could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone.
For a part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
You left us special memories,
Your love is still with us.
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our sides.
Our families are still together,
But as nothing stays the same,
When God calls us home, one by one,
We will be with you again.
-Forever loved and missed by wife Wilhelmina.

-In loving remembrance of a special Dad: John Ross SMITH who passed away on January 21 1996.
Our life goes on without you, Dad,
But nothing is the same,
We have to hide our heartache,
When someone speaks your name.
He had a loving nature,
And a heart as pure as gold,
He always had a smiling face,
And a story to be told.
A wonderful sense of humor,
And a twinkle in his eye,
A helping hand in time of need,
On that you could rely.
You did so many things for us,
Your heart was kind and true,
And when we needed someone,
We could always count on you.
Maybe we can't touch his hand,
Or see his smiling face,
And maybe we can't hear his voice,
Or feel his warm embrace.
Sad are the hearts that I love you,
Silent the tears that fall,
Living our life without you,
Is the hardest part of all.
But something we will always have,
Tucked safely in our hearts,
Our love for him, his love for us,
Will never let us part.
The special years will not return,
When we were all together,
But with the love within our hearts,
You will walk with us forever.
--Loving remembered by Daughters Marilyn and Connie, Sons Doug and Billy.

-In loving remembrance of a very special grandfather, John R. SMITH, who passed away January 21 1996.
God
Find the softest pillow,
And lay his head upon it,
Place a kiss on his cheek,
And tell him who its from,
Place your arms around him,
And hug him very snug,
Tell him that we love him,
And miss him very much.

In loving remembrance of a very special Dad, who passed away January 21 1996, John R. Smith.
"Dad"
We have a Heavenly Father
who knows and loves us well.
He gave to us our earthly Dad,
now took him home to dwell.
He must know we are strong enough
to deal with this hard blow,
For he let our Dad love us so much
before he had to go.
Because the Lord could not be here
and with us every day.
He gave us a caring father
to guide us on our way,
A father's love is never one,
that wears away with use.
It grows and just gets stronger,
the more it takes abuse.
Throughout the years of growing up,
and learning how to live.
We never quite gave Dad our time
or love we had to give.
We take for granted what we have,
and never do we see.
what is the most important thing,
until it ceases now to be.
With eternal life a gift to us,
from our spiritual "Dad",
We can go on as families still,
for that let's all be glad.
It's not an end to ties that bind,
those go on forever.
Death is just a passageway,
for us to be together.
We came to earth to have a chance,
to prove that we could love.
And follow steps to bring us back,
to our heavenly home above.
Dad must have learned and filled the roles
for which he was sent here.
And now he walks with family gone,
and loved ones held so dear.
With love and peace they welcome him,
into their arms once more.
He joins them in sweet refrain,
as the Lord opens the door.
We can all be as one again,
our God has told us how.
And Dad awaits us there as well.
as our heads to him we bow.
So on we go and live our lives,
as Dad would have us do.
Let's whistle all our tears away,
our troubles will be few.
So Dad you know we'll think of you,
forever in our heart.
And see you in our heads and homes,
until we too depart.
We'll be together all again,
and sing our hearts delight.
For now we say sweet farewell,
goodnight.
--Loving remembered by daughter Marilyn and Connie, Sons, Doug and Billy.
Forever in our thoughts.
