Light a Candle
Lawrence E. Leenknecht
I've known Terry since elementary school. I used to walk by his house every day on the way to school. In high school Terry and I would play racquet ball together. Terry would always kick my butt. But anytime that I ask Terry if he wanted to play and he had the time he'd play. I will always remember the fun we had playing racquet ball together. Terry was a good soul. I'll miss him, but he's in a better place now.
I didn't know Terry but a friend was saddened by this memorial and led me here. I can see by his picture and story that he was far too young to leave abruptly like this. I wish to share one thing I've recently learned. It somehow seems that when one leaves before they have gotten very old, they were perhaps too good for this earth.
They'll be missed by humans and animals alike and it's a terrible kind of separation because it was too soon.
But we are all Sailors of Life's Oceans. We know he has a good wind on God's following seas and the ship that carries him, is nothing but his Soul carried by the Winds of Heaven. God bless Terry and all who knew him, and may the grief of this time one day be replaced by something opposite to this from the other side that will balance this unfair loss. May the Blessings BE!
...I am at a loss for words...Heart broken for Eana & family...
Terry I will miss you so very much. R.I.P. my dear friend. You tought so much to so many people. Thank you for all the opportunities that you gave me in the sailing world. You will be forever missed ♥
I found this poem and thought of Terry and the entire Keller Family. I didn't know Terry, but I do know how much he was loved. I send my love and prayers to the entire Keller Family.
If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
If 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 care for me, and how much I care for 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 life, I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for and so much yet to do.
it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while,
I’d say goodbye and hug you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realised that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss come tomorrow.
I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne,
He said, "This is eternity and all I’ve promised you,
Today your life on earth is past but here it’s starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last.
and since each day’s the same, there’s no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting, so true.
Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.
And you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?"
So if tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, please know I’m in your heart.
