Where once two peerless patriots lived, we mourn, but Heaven rejoices, for these are two of God's most special children, together again, never to be parted. "Once upon a time, the world was sweeter than we knew; everything was ours, how happy we were then..." - from the song Once Upon A Time, words by Lee Adams; music by Charles Strouse. Helen was a dear, dear friend, as was Wayne. The torches they carried are now carried on by those of us still here. We will not let them down!

Helen and Wayne were both 'Points of Light' (Randy Travis song; "There is a time, when you cannot walk away, When you've got to stand up straight and tall and mean the words you say; There is a time you must do it 'cause it's right; That's when you become a Point of Light"). The entire world is blessed for them having been here, if only for a short few years. It was my blessing to have been counted among their friends. With reddened eyes and a huge lump in my throat, I want to believe it's not true, that somehow it's a mistake, that I could drive out to Pine Creek Ranch and find them still there. God, how You blessed us by sharing these two with us!
