    When Jesus friend Lazarus died Jesus said to his Sister Martha at John 11:25 “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; 26 and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him: “Yes, Lord – What a marvelous hope indeed held out to us as shown in Jesus further words at Mathew 5 vs 5 “Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth. With what conditions Psalms 37:11 states But the meek will possess the earth,And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace
    My Bible hope is to welcome my brother, mother, father, back to this beautiful world where we will find our exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

    This is for Ronald
    Our brother so true
    We’re glad he hung in there
    To see us and hear us
    Tell him I Love You

    He fought long he fought hard
    He was was strong, he was brave
    He fought a good fight
    Until his final day

    He is our brother the youngest of five
    We will Love him and miss him
    Until the end of time

    He was loving he was kind
    He was warm he was gentle
    He never complained
    He lived life to the fullest
    He made the best of his days

    Although he is no longer with us
    Because he is in Heaven above
    His memories will wrap around us
    Like a blanket of Love

    We’re glad he’s at peace now
    And free from his pain
    We wish we had him longer
    Now to deal with our pain

    His brothers and sisters
    That’s who we are
    And when we look at the night sky
    We will see his shining star

    We will always Love you and miss you
    Ronald Joseph Anthony Schuzer

    Love Rudy, Michael, Karen, Lorraine

    I have only just lost you; the pain is hard to bear.
    Do I have to go through life knowing you’re not there?
    Please, someone explain to me why he had to go.
    Are there any reasons I really need to know?
    I sit here and remember all the lovely times we shared, 
    the talks, the laughter, of everyone you cared.
    I am told the pain will ease in time
    and I will think of him without a tear,
    but that will be impossible as I need to have him here.
    He was my very world, my sunshine, my guiding star.
    Just kiss me softly on the forehead and tell me where you are.

    An Angel whispered
    take my hand and
    come with me
    your work here is done.

    I went away to a place
    where there’s no tears, nor sorrow
    only laughter and smiles,
    there will always be a Tomorrow.

    As I move amongst the clouds.
    I’ll look down and smile upon you,
    while the angels
    sing a heavenly song.

    I am not alone
    all who went before
    are here
    they awaited my return.

    I know you’ll grieve
    and wish I was still here
    I am here in the memories
    you hold dear.

    Remember how much I
    love you
    and know I took your
    love with me.

    I did not wish for
    you to cry, nor feel sad.
    My pain is gone and
    I am Free!

    Soon you’ll come to me
    until then
    God will be with you
    Just as He’s with me.

    God bless you Ronald while you sleep with the angels, rest you head and be reassured you will have no more pain and no more worries. You made the lives of all who knew you richer, you will live in my memory eyes full of light, and smiles wide with love. You were one of the kindest gentlest souls I have ever know. I am sad for the loss of you, but glad for eternal peace and happiness as you join our Lord in heaven. Love always, Fran
