A letter from Heaven

When tomorrow starts without me,
and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes, filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
the way you did today,
while thinking of things,
we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
and each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart,
for every time you think of me,
I’m right there in your heart.

Kathryn Clayborn, “I love you brother and you will be missed.”
Mary Williams, “We love you and the Lord will take care of you!”
Sherylette Allen-Caldwell, “Will love you always. You were loved by many!”

Private Cremation Services were entrusted to MARLAN J. GARY FUNERAL HOME, THE CHAPEL OF PEACE NORTH 2500 Cleveland Ave. Please contact the family for future repass information.

    Uncle Norman, the baby boy of the family and the kid’s uncle of uncles. I will always remember the jokes you played on me when I was a kid. And how watching you draw inspired me to do the same.

    As an adult I will remember our talks and listening to music, hours upon hours, with you. You always made it a point to share whatever you had.
    Holding you dear in my heart!
    ~ peace and love always
