Scott of Taylor Michigan 20 Grandchildren 35 Great Grandchildren And a host of Great Great Grandchildren, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins Relatives and Friends Life Is Forever, Death Is a Dream If we did not go to sleep at night We’d never awaken to see the light, And the joy of watching a new day break Or meeting the dawn by some quiet lake, Would never be ours unless we slept While God and all His angels kept, A vigil through this “little death” That’s over with the morning’s breath. And death, too, is a time of sleeping For those who died are in God’s keeping. And there’s a sunrise for each soul, For life, not death is God’s promised goal. So trust God’s promise and doubt Him never. For only through death can man live forever!
