GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done,
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
times and bright and
summer days.
I'd like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.

Sailing the Ships of Heaven

Don't cry for me when I'm gone
Keep the faith and be strong
'Cause through it all I've been blessed
I faced my fears and I've passed the test
So when you look up in the sky on a sunny day
Imagine me drifting away
I'll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the last time
You'll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day I come sailing back to you
Remember all the times we had
Some were great and some were sad
But you know that in the end
Our love was stronger then when we began
No unforgiven sins and no regrets
Just the times of our lives that we'll never forget
I'll be sailing on the ships of heaven
When the tide rolls out for the last time
You'll find me sailing on the ships of heaven
Waiting for the day I come sailing back to you.
Brenda Blank Segura
Brenda Blank Segura, a 1983 graduate, was born January 12, 1964 and left this world January 15, 2004 after battling colon cancer for many years. She is survived by her husband, Ignacio Segura and 3 children, Michael, Jessica, and Lorenzo. She was such a beautiful person inside and out and always looked at the brighter side of things. Her family was her life and I do not know that she could have ever been loved anymore than she is. As she was fighting for her life she made one last request from God, to let her live her life long enough to take her 2 youngest children to Disney World and God granted that wish in August of 2003. She was able to continue her fight for her life for only a few more months.

Go rest now precious one,
Your life in eternity has just begun.
Now you can walk, your legs are brand new.
All of heaven is now in your view.
Look all around, it's all in your sight,
There will never be another dark night.
Flowers and jewels, the street of pure gold, and all of the things that have been told.
I can just imagine the smile on your face as you walk all around in that beautiful place.
Greeting our loved ones as you walk along, while singing heaven's most beautiful song.
This is so very hard, but it will all be okay, it isn't goodbye, we'll see you one day.
We love you and we'll miss you and at times it will be tough, but as with everything, God's grace will be enough.

We miss and love you so much and cannot wait to see your beautiful smile again.
Royce Glen Walker
Royce Glen Walker, a 1971 graduate, departed from this world on November 24, 2008 at the age of 55. He was a kind man who had one mission -- to make life a better place for his family and closest friends. That mission here on earth was cut short, but he has undertaken a new mission in a better place. He is truly missed.




If We Could Bring You Back Again

If we could bring you back again,
For one more hour or day,
We would express all our unspoken love;
We would have countless things to say.
If we could bring you back again,
We would say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.
If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You would know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would.
