Union County Riding Club to



celebrate 50th Anniversary


BY RALPH PARRISH
Special to the Times
"Fifty years ago, I had a
dream."
So said J.P. Bennett.
Bennett loves his horses and
wanted to see a place come
together with fellow horse
lovers where they could enjoy
some friendly horse speed
competition. From there, the
Union County Riding club
was born.
Today, we are still
competing because of
Bennett's dream.

The riding club was started
in 1962 at the home of Bennett
in -the southeast section of
Lake Butler. The families
would meet in Bennett's
pasture and compete in
different barrel-racing games.
Also, at times, some pretty


good straight horse races would
take place on the road in front
of Bennett's home.
After some time, with
interest continuing to grow,
early members J.P. Bennett,
Robbie Parrish, Willie
Andrews, John Whitehead and
the Saunders family, decided to
organize a club. Memberships
were sold at $5 per family for
one year. With interest-
growing in the club from local
and surrounding areas,' it, was'
soon determined that a more-
permanent place had to be
found to establish a club.

Somewhere around 1964,
members of the club
approached the Union County
commission and leased the
property south of Lake Butler
on S.R. 121. This is where the


club was first established and
has remained strong through
the years.
Through many members
donating time, equipment and
labor, the .land was soon
cleared, the arena built and the
club officially opened in 1965.
A parade down Main Street in
Lake Butler was held to
celebrate the first horse show
held at the newly established
riding club arena. After this
time, completion was advanced
in the form of a tri-county
competition with clubs from
Columbia and Bradford
counties joining in to set up
stage for annual frolics that are
still part of the club today.
The riding club has always
been well represented in the
area with outstanding horses
and riders who continue to wir


throughout our area.
In 1977, the riding club
voted to join the Northeast
Florida Riding Club
Association. This consisted of
II clubs from Palatka to
Nassau County to Duval
.County. The Union County
club remained in this
association for many years to
come. Through the years, the
National Barrel Horse
Association was established,
and the Union County Riding
Club continues to participate
in the 3D format for barrel
racing, sending 'many of its
riders to the world finals.
The club has also been an
active supporter of the Florida
Sheriffs Youth Ranches'
annual open house and horse

Stretch of S.R. 100 to

honor Union Deputies


- House Bill 7039 passed the
Florida Legislature, which
provides honorary designations
of various transportation
facilities. One of these
designations honors two deputies
from Union County: : Hal P.
Croft and Ronald Jackson.
The bill states that the portion
of S.R. 100 East between the
Bradford County line and the
'Columbia County line in Union
County will be designated as
"Deputy Hal P. Croft and
Deputy Ronald Jackson
Highway." The Department of
Transportation will erect markers
to showcase this designation.


"The community of Union
County has shown a steadfast
commitment in the movement
to get these designations to
honor these two deputies," State
Florida Rep. Janet Adkins said.
"These first responders deserve
our up-most respect for the work
they do, putting-their -lives on
the line on a daily basis."
Croft and Jackson were killed
in the line of duty in May'1961
while trying to serve a warrant.
This designation serves as both a
memorial and an honorable
statement to the commitment
and dedication these two deputies
showed in serving their county.


Bobby, Walter, Rowland and Robbie Parrish (pictured from left) were some of the original members of the Union
County Riding Club in the early 1960s.


Middle school students plant



trees .n honor of Arbor Day


BY TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor
On March 9, in celebration
of Arbor Day, Lake Butler
Middle School sixth-grade
students, the Florida Division
of Forestry and members of the
Lions Club came together to
plant trees at city hatl in Lake
Butler.
The trees were purchased
through a Florida Forestry
grant. Twenty flowering
dogwood plants were planted,
Sand each student that
participated was given a
,dogwood tree to take home.
This was the eighth year that
trees have been planted in Lake
Butler to celebrate Arbor Day,
with between 150 and 160
trees being planted during that
time.

"Each year I go to the school
and visit the sixth-graders to
share with them about Arbor
Day and its history, and the
importance of planting and
caring for trees," said County
Forester Jay Tucker.
Arbor Day is actually in
January in Florida,' but a
March tree planting was
chosen for better weather.


Standing proud after planting their tree are: (back, I-r) Holly Roberts, Nicole
Lanterman, Breanna Griffis, Payton Westfall, Jonathon Williams, (front, I-r) Tiesha
Archer, Hunter Flowers, and Brandon Cooley.


According to Tucker, Arbor
Day was the idea of J. Sterling
Morton. In 1872, Morton


helped start.a ne\\ holiday in more than one million trees
Nebraska dedicated to tree were planted on the firsi Arbor
planting. It was estimated that see ARBOR page 6

bookkeeper with Lake Butler

the Union County School
Board for 11 years, with 9.5 of
these years as payroll
coordinator. I am presently in
my ninth year with Alachua
County Public Schools in the
position of payroll manager.
under the finance department.
I manage a staff of five to
support 44 schools and 32
departments within the school
district. It is my responsibility
to maintain a strong system of
internal controls to provide
integrity in county records.
Each of our bi-monthly payroll
totals is approximately $6.2
million and pays about 4,500
regular employees, with an
additional 175 early retirees.
I have the responsibility of'
managing an annual budget of
$149 million. This includes'
processing and balancing bi-
monthly, monthly, quarterly
and annual reports. These
reports include IRS tax
deposits and Florida
Retirement System reports,
along with the W-2s, 1099R
reports and other specific
reports as needed. I also
oversee the reporting of
payroll deductions and
garnishments of our employees
to the appropriate entities.
Communication is extremely
important to me. In my
position, I have contact with
not only the upper
management and outside
sources, but I must interact
with all employees to ensure
-they have a solution to the


property taxes and utility- rates
were executed during my tenure.
As. of today; the city is in
excellent financial shape.
While also serving on the
commission, the city has
successfully obtained federal and
state grants to better facilitate
the needs of the city, such as the
future city of Lake Butler fire
station, improvements of the
Lake Butler lake boat ramps,
launching and docking areas, and
future construction of Jhe water
park.
Although there remain
projects that' I would have liked
to accomplish, I discovered
during my term that governrfient
does not move as fast as I have
anticipated.
My support for the youth of
this 'great community is
unquestionable. As a
commissioner, I have worked
.diligently with Union County as
the city liaison for the Union
County Recreation Board.
I have no personal agenda in
my decision-making process

completely committed and
dedicated to all of the citizens of
this great city, and I will not be
influenced by negative forces

UF student walking

across United States
f-r h r


Barrett Keene recently spent
the day at the Union County
High School agriculture
department promoting his walk
across America. Several UCHS
FFA 'members walked with him
for about 6 miles.
. Keene is on a mission that
will take him on a coast-to-coast
journey to raise awareness and
funds for orphaned children.
: Keene, a University of Florida
graduate and current doctoral
student at Cornell University,
will walk from Miami to San
Francisco-a journey -of 3,500
miles-to highlight the harsh
realities 145 million orphaned
children fate every day and to
spur Americans to action. His
eight-month journey-Go Walk
America-began Jan. 28.
Go Walk America, partnering
with GO Threads, an initiative
of The Global Orphan Project,
(GO' Project), hopes to get
commitments from individuals
and organizations to sponsor
25,000 school uniforms, costing
$20 each, for orphans and other
children living in rags. These
children live in communities
where they are not allowed to
attend school unless they have a
uniform, which is one reason
why many of the poorest


children don't receive even a
primary education.
Through GO Threads, sewing
centers are being started to create
jobs and spur economic
development in .some of the
most impoverished communities
in the world. In addition to
education, economic
development in these
communities is paramount in
the fight for orphaned and
abandoned children worldwide. If
25,000. school uniforms are
purchased., dozens of adults in
some of the world's poorest
countries will have jobs at the
GO Threads sewing centers.
All of the funds raised during
Keene's Go Walk America will
go toward offering shelter, food,\
education and support for
orphans in 15 countries around
the world.
The Go Walk America route
will take Keene through Miami,
Tampa, Atlanta, Nashville, St.
Louis, Kansas City, Denver,
Salt Lake City, Sacramenteo and
San Francisco. Keene will walk
solo with the help 'of a few
friends driving a support vehicle.

Science Class

participates

in Envirothon


The Union County High
School environmental science
class participated in the
Suwannee Regional Envirothon,
which was held recently at
Florida Gateway College in Lake
City.
More than 100 high school
students participated from
Union, Columbia and Suwannee
counties. The class was divided
into two teams of five, and each
student served as captain of one
of five environmental topics:
forestry, aquatics, soils, current
issues and wildlife. Teams
identified themselves with an
environmental-related name.
The UCHS team known as
"Wicked Problems," which was
led' by captain Waylon Griffis,




off at the back of the school.
Students may walk as little or as
much as they wish. School food
service staff will have a breakfast
cart in the area for those who
wish to eat breakfast outside at a
picnic table rather than in the
cafeteria.
The walk is open from 7:30
a.rm. to 7:50 a.m., Monday
through Thursday. Tiger Up
will not be held on Fridays or
on days with inclement weather.
Though LBES will have
volunteers monitoring the walk,
they- said they would love to
have more involved. If you are

Local partnership


recognizes Food


Check-out Week


with contribution


SFood Check-Out Week creates
an opportunity for Farm Bureau
Members to help consumers use
their grocery dollars wisely as
they manage the continuing
effects of the national economic
recession.
Celebrated this year from Feb.
19 through Feb. 25, the event
was held with the theme of
"Stretching Your Grocery Dollar
With Healthy, Nutritious Food."
To recognize this year's event,
the Union County Farm Bureau
partnered with Spires
Supermarkets to make a
contribution to the Union
County Ministerial Alliance and
assist local families in need with
making healthy food choices on
a budget.
Farmers and ranchers receive
19 cents out of every dollar
spent on food. Off-farm costs,
processing, packaging,
wholesaling and retailing
account for 81 cents. In 1980,
the farm producer received 31
cents of every dollar !pent on
food.
According to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture,
higher retail food prices have
primarily resulted from


Displaying

,Sandhill

cranes

present rare

sight in Lake

Butler

BY.TIFFANY CLARK
Times Editor
Several community
inembers have recently noticed
and reported a pair of sandhill
cranes roaming about the town
between the Lake Butler lake
and the surrounding area. Not
common in Lake Butler, these
birds are stirring up some
attention.
; According to the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, sandhill cranes are
long-legged, long-necked, gray,
heron-like birds with a patch of
bald, red skin on top of their
heads. Sandhill cranes fly with
their necks outstretched with
powerful, rhythmic wing
beats.
; Florida's sandhill cranes are
a threatened species that are
found in inland shallow
freshwater marshes, prairies,
pastures and farmlands.
Sometimes they can be seen
on lawns throughout Florida.
They are sensitive birds that
do not adjust well to changed
environments and high human
populations.
: Sandhill cranes are usually
seen in small family groups or
pairs. However, during the
winter, Florida's sandhill crane
population increases as cranes
from northern states spend the
winter in Florida.
SSandhill cranes are

Woman's Club.


omnivorous, meaning they eat
a variety of plant and animal
matter. Some of their favorite
meal items include seeds, plant
tubers, grains, berries, insects,
earthworms, mice, snakes,
lizards, frogs and crayfish.
Unlike other wading birds,
such as herons, sandhill cranes
*do not "fish."
,The voice of the sandhill
crane is one of the most
distinctive bird sounds in
Florida. This "call of the wild"
has been described as a bugling
or trumpeting sound, and can
be heard for several miles.
Florida sandhill cranes stay
with the same mate for several
years, and young sandhills stay
with their parents until they
are approximately 10 months
old. Like their endangered
relatives the whooping cranes,
sandhills live to be older than
most birds. In fact, some
sandhill cranes live up to 20
years.

RIDING

from page 1
show since 1968. Union
County Riding Club riders and
horses have remained strong
competitors in this statewide
competition, bringing home
many overall and class-high
points. One rider-Paula
Seay-represented the club in
the Naiional Finals Rodeo in
2004 and 2005.
The dream that started with
Bennett has continued to
remain alive through the
competitive spirit and love of
horses, which have touched
many families in Union
County.
We are forever grateful to
those early families who
pressed on and established the
club. Come join us Saturday,
March 31, and Sunday, April
1, to celebrate the dream that
still lives 50 years later at the
Union County Riding Club.
The event will begin with a
parade down Main Street in
Lake Butler-just as the club
began those many years ago.
Bring your stories and
memories, and come help us
celebrate this special time.


There were 196 Lake Butler Middle School students who helped plant trees in celebration of Arbor Day.

Day.
Morton's idea quickly
spread. Today, Arbor Day is
celebrated in all 50 states and
in many other countries.
Actual dates of the event
differ for each area depending
on planting times. The most
common date that states
celebrate Arbor Day is the last
Friday of April each year, the
same date as National Arbor
Day. In Florida, Arbor Day is
celebrated the third Friday in
January.

Trees are the earth's oldest
living organisms. They
improve air and water quality;
reduce heating and cooling
costs; provide a cool and
beautiful place to live, work
and play; are a renewable
source of fuel; provide shelter,
food and other products; and
provide benefits that directly
affect economic, environmental
and social health.

Lake Butler Middle School
had 196 students help plant the

trees to better the community.
This year, the Lake Butler
Lions Club joined the event.
Lions Club International has
set a goal to plant one million
trees this year.
Seedlings were donated to
the Lions Club by the Florida
Division of Forestry for an
upcoming event to help toward
that goal.


Do we know when the Lord will return?
Many people make predictions about when the Lord will return.
Yet the Bible .clearly tells us we do not know. Jesus was
unaware of the time of His return and says no one "but My
Father only" knows such (Matthew 24:36). The Lord's return is
pictured as a thief coming in ihe night. Jesus warned, "You do
not know what hour your Lord is coming ... if the master of the
house had known what hour the thief would come, he would
have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into... the
Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect" (Matthew
24:42-44). Some realize they do not know the specific day or
time of the Lord's return but believe they know the general time
frame. Paul says he knew neither the exact day nor the
approximate time but .it would be like a thief'in the night (1
Thessalonians 5:1-2).

Masonry showcase: a competition that prepares for life


BY CLIFF SMELLEY
Regional News/Sports Editor
Masonry students in career
tenters and high schools are
learning the skills that will make
them attractive to would-be-hir-
ers, but the students at the Brad-
ford-Union Area Career Techni-
cal Center and six other schools
got the chance to actually be ob-
served by prospective employers
at the annual Northeast Florida
Masonry Showcase, which was
;held Feb. 24 in Starke.
:"We're supposed to be finding
.young people to come into the
,masonry trade," said Al Hern-
,don of the not-for-profit Florida
Masonry Apprenticeship Educa-
-tional Foundation, which is one


of the event sponsors. "This is
the premier way for them to get
seen in front of a lot of contrac-
tors."
This is the eighth consecutive
year of the event, which is held
at the Florida Department of
-Management Services' Bureau.
of Federal Property Assistance'
warehouse. It has become some-
thing Mike Beville, the masonry
instructor at the Bradford-Union
Area Career Technical Center,
couldn't have envisioned at its
start.
"When it first started, we had
four teams, and we did it on the
back practice pad over at the ca-
reer center," Beville said.
Marion Technical Institute


and Lakeland's Traviss Career
Center joined the Bradford-
Union school, St. Augustine's
Menendez High School, Suwan-
nee-Hamilton Technical Cen-
ter and Camden County (Ga.)
High School in 2010 to bring the
number of competing teams to
six. West Nassau High School
joined the event this. year.
"The kids just love to com-
pete," Herndon said. "They are
doing something very few high
school students can do, which is
build with brick and block."
The Brick Industry Asso-
ciation's Bryan Light, who was
one of the judges for the event,
encouraged the participants to
stick with those brick-and-block

needed when the economy picks
up.
"It's going to turn around
pretty soon," Light said. "We're
going to need you."
Each school participating in
the showcase, with. the excep-
tion of Marion Technical, had a
team that consisted of five com-
petitors. (For various reasons,
only one of the Marion team
members made the trip.) The
Bradford-Union. team consisted
of Marcus Beard, Tim Craig,
Michael James, James Kulbacki
and Cody Morrison.
Each individual had to build a


partial wall composed of bricks
and -blocks according to certain
specifications and based upon a
design model.
Codey Rogers, a Bradford
High School graduate and for-
mer standout competitor at the
event, built the design model.
Competitors had approxi-
mately three-and-a-half hours
to work, with their project being
judged in the following catego-
ries: plumb, level, square and
range, measurements, correct
design, manipulation, tooling
.and neatness, full joints and pro-
duction. '
The maximum possible


score-also factoring in a writ-
ten test-for each individual
was 1,000 points. A five-man
team, therefore, could achieve a
maximum of 5,000 points.
This year's winning team was
Menendez with 4,525 points.
Menendez also had the highest
individual finisher in Jacob Ful-
ford, who had 958 points.
Suwannee-Hamilton was
runner-up with 3,961 points,
followed by West Nassau with
3,841 points, Traviss with 3,565
points, Camden County with

45 years of scouting gives troop

leader unique perspective


BY DAN HILDEBRAN
StarkeJournal.com Editor
Carolyn Eaves has seen nearly
50 years of girl scouting. During
her forth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade
years in Anna, Ill., she partici-
pated in the local troop.
In 1968, she joined the leader-


ship ranks, signing up as a troop
leader to support her daughter
Andrea.
Since that year, when the
Lucille Ball, Andy Griffith and
Gomer Pyle led the Nielsens,
Eaves has been meeting with
girls, helping them earn badges


and selling cookies.
Now, with. two daughters-
Carmen Forsyth and Andrea
Waterhouse-joining her in
leadership, and seven grand-
daughters in the girl scouts,

Today, there are more than 3.2
million members of Girl Scouts
of the USA and 10 million girls
and adults in 145 countries in
the World Association of Girl
Guides and Girl Scouts.
The Girl Scout Gold Award
is girl scouting's highest honor.
Completing a gold award project
may take up to two years, and
only approximately 5 percent of
eligible girls obtain the honor.
The Mistletoe Troop in
Muskogee, Okla., first sold Girl
Scout cookies in 1917. Cookie
selling remained a local affair
until 1922, when the organiza-
tion's national magazine chron-
icled recipes girls could use to
bake their own cookies and sell

,K),


since 1965.
Beville wasn't expecting to
accept a trophy at this year's
showcase. Only one of his stu-
dents Beard had competed
in a previous event.
More valuable than a trophy,
though, is the experience, Bev-
ille said. It's an experience he
hopes will prepare them for life
after school.
For first-year showcase partic-
ipants, the hardest thing Jo deal
with is working within a time
frame, Beville said. They get in
a rush and forget to do some of
the things they need to do, such
as making sure their structure is
level,
The real-life lesson is to keep
plugging along anyway and not
get discouraged. On a job site,
for example, things are going to
go wrong. Things aren't always
going to be pleasant.
Beville said the key is to nev-


er give up. That's all he asks 'of
his students who compete in the
showcase-to stick it out to the
end, even if it becomes apparent
they aren't going to fully con-
struct their projects by the end
of the allowed time period.
"I don't care if they've got
seven block and three brick up,"
Beville said. "They didn't quit."
While those students who are
truly serious about masonry as
a career receive good prepara-
tion at the Bradford-Union Area
Career Technical Center, taking
National Center for Construc-
tion Education and Research
(NCCER) curriculum and par-
ticipating in a Department of
Labor-approved apprenticeship
program, Beville hopes all of his
students are prepared for wher-
ever life takes them.
"I'm not necessarily teach-
ing them to be masons," Beville
said. "I'm teaching them to be


ready to go to work."
When it comes to the annual
' masonry showcase, a lot of peo-
ple step up to go to work. The
event receives tremendous sup-
pert from various companies
that donate materials and equip-
ment every year. Such support
this year amounts to $8,000-
$10,000, Beville said.
Each competing team was
sponsored by a company, with
the schools and their sponsors
as follows: Bradford-Union-
Painter Masonry, Camden
County-Quikrete, Marion-
Tyvek, Menendez-NCCER,
Suwannee-Hamilton -Cemex,
Traviss-Mortar Net and West
Nassau-Cash Building Materi-
als.
Aside from sponsoring the
Bradford-Union team, Jerry
Painter of Painter Masonry
stepped up when the mortar mix-
er at the showcase quit working,
pulling a mixer and equipment
from a job site at Camp Bland-
ing so that they could be used at
the showcase.
Other sponsors of the event,
aside from the Florida Mason-
ry Apprenticeship Educational
Foundation and Florida Depart-
ment of Management Services,
included EZ Grout Corpora-
tion, Marshalltown, Marcobay
Construction, Lowe's, the Brick
Industry, Prestige, St. Johns
Housing Partnership and Duke's
Famous BBQ of Lake Asbury,
which catered a lunch for the
students and all those involved
with the showcase.
That kind of support has
helped the showcase grow from
four schools competing to seven,
and those involved look for even
more growth.

Girl Scout leader wont cost you
time."
Eaves has witnessed changes
to the scouts over the years.
"We've gotten away from
the outdoor activities and gone
more toward more of a career
and technology curriculum," she
said.
Also, the group has expanded
its horizons both to the younger
set with kindergarten and first-
grade Daisies and with high
school-aged Ambassadors.
But the core functions of the
organization remain the same..
Brownies still gather in a cir-
cle each week and engage in a
friendship squeeze after sharing
ideas, the group still majors on
honoring God and country and
the Girl Scouts focus on instill-
ing integrity, honesty and val-
ues.
Another challenge facing


today's Girl Scout is competi-
tion. 4H, athletics and dance and
gymnastics schools are all after
leadership talent, minivan time
and parental funding.
"It costs some money to be in
Girl Scouts," Eaves said. "There
are uniforms and supplies.
Somebody has to get the girls
to themeetings. Somebody has
to pick them up and take them
home."
Eaves, said the investment is
worth it. Waterhouse. who in
1968 got her mother back into
scouting, is now the director of
nursing at Shands Starke. Ea\ es
said the leadership skills and
values Waterhouse picked up in
scouting have made a huge im-
pact on her daughter's life, and
she's excited to see the impact
scouting will have on her grand-
daughters.

'sophomore did the work in the
Circle, limiting visiting Santa Fe
!to two hits in the Bradford soft-
i ball team's 6-1 District 5-4A win
,jon March 8.
Bradford (9-1, 5-1 in District

SSeniors Ashley Johnson and
SKiki Strong provided the neces-
Ssary offense, with Johnson hitting
:a two-run home run and Strong
driving in another two runs with
ia double.
Both hits came in a five-run
f fourth inning that put the Torna-
;does up 6-0.
The first run occurred in the
second inning, which began
;with a double into right field by
Mackenzie Gault. A throwing er-
iror on a bunt by Lainie Rodgers
i allowed Gault to score.
Bradford made some nice de-
fensive plays in the top of the
third, with third baseman Taylor
I Cruce fielding a bunt and throw-
;ing the runner out at first for the
First out and catcher Johnson
i catching a foul pop-up for the
i second out. Cruce then caught a
Sfoul pop-up to end the inning.
The Tornadoes' big fourth in-
-l- - -__ _


ning began when Rodgers drilled
a single into left field just out of
the third baseman's reach. A low
throw to first base on a Leanna
Norman bunt allowed Bradford
to put runners on first and sec-
ond. Strong, with a 1-2 count,
hit two straight pitches just foul
down the first-base line before
knocking a ball into the gap be-
tween center and left, which al-
lowed Rodgers and Norman to
score. Strong, who advanced to
third on the throw from the out-
field, scored on Lindsey Wig-
gins' bunt.
Johnson capped the scoring
with a home run to center.
Santa Fe scored its lone run in
the sixth. Tiffany Pena led off the
inni.ng.with a single and scored
on Megan Shiskin's two-out
double.
The Raiders threatened again
in the top of the seventh. Ashtin
Strickland singled to lead off the
inning;while an error put runners
on first and second with no outs.
Adkins struck out Lauren Riley
for the first out. Alex Sealy then
hit a ground ball to Cruce, who
got the force out at third before
firing a throw to Wiggins at first.
Wiggins stretched out to make a
catch just off the ground to re-
cord the out and end the game.

JoNell Hart Bethea
"Precious Sister"
Alar 17, 1951-Oct. 6, 2011


Sometimes I still hear the
sound of your voice. I
wish you were still here
with me, but you had no
choice. I know an angel
held you as your body
said goodbye. But that
doesn't stop my heart
from breaking... "I miss
you and I cry."
Nd one can believe that
you are really gone. Our
hearts are broken and our
spirits moan. "She was
too young," I've heard
people say. "Why did she
have to die this way?" I
try not to be angry..I
kneel and pray, asking
God to be with us as we
face each day. I always
try to give the boys an
extra kiss to make up for
their Nana, who will
always be missed. I
understand everyone's
emptiness and their
sorrow, too, because my
prgr.ys sister, we all,
miss'you!
I know you are happy in
Heaven above,
surrounded by angels and
all their love. But today
on earth, my heart still
grieves, because you are
no longer here to talk
with me. I will look
toward Heaven, for I
know I will see a star that
will suddenly glow big
and bright. It will be my
sister, smiling... and
watching over me.

In Loving Memory
"A Fireman's Prayer"
When I am called to duty,
God, wherever flames
may rage...
Give ;me strength to save
some life, whatever be its
age.
Help me embrace a little
child before it is too
late...
Or save an older person
from the horror of that
fate.
Enable me to be alert and
hear the weakest shout..
And quickly and
efficiently to put the fire
out.
I want to fill my calling
and to give the best in
me...
To guard my every
neighbor and protect .
their property.
And, if according to your
will, I have to lose my
life...1
Please bless with your

"The Broken Chain"
We little knew that day
that God was going to
call your name.
In life we loved you
dearly, in death we do the
same.
It broke our hearts to lose
you, but in God we put
our trust.
Jn times as difficult as
this, faith is such a must.
You left us peaceful
memories, your love is
still our guide..
And though we cannot see
you, you are always at
our side.
Our family chain is
broken, and nothing
seems the same. But as
God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
