From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/17/15:
|“My promise to you
who pray and serve the Lord cannot be that you will have every blessing
you may wish for yourself and your family. But I can promise you that
the Savior will draw close to you and bless you and your family with
what is best. You will have the comfort of His love and feel the answer
of His drawing closer as you reach out your arms in giving service to
others. As you bind up the wounds of those in need and offer the
cleansing of His Atonement to those who sorrow in sin, the Lord’s power
will sustain you. His arms are outstretched with yours to succor and
bless the children of our Heavenly Father, including those in your

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 03/15/17 - "The Train of Life":
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will
always travel on our side.
However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant, i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.
Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats.
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations,hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers, requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.
So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty.
We should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life.
Reap success and give lots of love.
More importantly, thank God for the journey.
Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.
Thank you, Wayne!

Music: The Londonderry Air
Oh Danny boy,
the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.
And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.
And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
