    Here we are again
    That old familiar place
    Where the winds will blow
    No one ever knows the time nor place

    Don’t cry for me
    Don’t shed a tear
    The time I shared with you will always be
    And when I’m gone, please carry on
    Don’t Cry for me.

    No one is to blame my death was meant to be, don’t carry guilt nor shame the reason why I came soon you’ll see.

    Don’t cry for me
    Don’t shed a tear
    The time I shared with you always be and when I’m gone, please carry on
    Don’t cry for me.

    Don’t cry for me

    Desmond rest peacefully.

  3. I first met Desmond on a Sunday at Heartland taking our Lab/Retriever-mix dog to visit residents. He liked her and Maggie liked him, licking his hand. She also licked his hand 2 days before he passed. It has been an honor to serve Desmond as a Hospice Volunteer. We had some good conversations and laughs together, discussing food and décor, the articles in various magazines and how to get his coffee just right (hazelnut flavoring, 3 sugars from the yellow packets only). I will miss him and send my sympathy to the family. Nancy

  9. Dear family,
    I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I did not know Mr. Fitzhugh personally but in just reading the thoughts of condolences it is obvious that he touched the lives of many. I merely want to share thoughts of encouragement from God’s Holy Bible. Revelation 21:3,4 speaks of a time when pain, suffering, tears of sorrow and even death will cease to affect the human family! Can you imagine that? John 5:28,29 promises us that our dear loved ones who are asleep in death will be resurrected. So as your memories of Mr. Fitzhugh fill your minds and hearts may the GOD of all comfort embrace you all.

Leave Your Condolence
