Vera Lee Rawls Rhodes (Mickey) Nov. 26, 1941-Nov. 18, 2011 "Tomorrow Starts Without Me" When tomorrow starts without me, and Im not there to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me, I wish so much you wouldnt cry the way you did then, while thinking of the many things we didnt get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time that you think of me, I know youll miss me too, but when tomorrow starts without me, please try and understand that an angel came and called my name and took my hand, and said my place was ready, in Heaven far above and that Id have to leave behind all those I dearly love, but as I turned to walk away a tear fell from my eye, for all my life Id always thought I didnt want to die. I had so much to live for, so much left to do, It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, all the fun we had. If I could re-live yesterday, just even for awhile, Id say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be, for emptiness and memories would take the place of me and when I thought of wordly things. I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow, but when I walked through Heavens gate, I felt so much at home. When GOD looked down and smiled at me, from HIS Great Golden Throne, He said "This is eternity and all Ive promised you." Today your life on earth is past, but here life starts anew, I promise no tomorrow but today will always last since each days the same way theres no longing for the past you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true, though there were times you did some things you know you shouldnt do but you have been forgiven and now at last youre free, so you wont come and take my hand and share my life with me? So when tomorrow starts without me, dont think were far apart, for everytime you think of me, Im right here in your heart. Sadly missed by husband, Harold, children, Sharon, Harriett, Mann and Eric, and sister, Decie other family and friends.
