Bengtson, who passed away July 4, 1997. ***** One year has passed since you were here, Oh how we miss you father dear. God took you home, it was His will, But in our hearts you linger still. Sadly missed by 22-1 wife and family IN MEMORIAM In memory of Rick Swigerd. "Oh, Lord," I cried, "My heart will break Nothing can ever stop this ache. Oh Lord, My son is gone." "Gone?" God said, "no, he is not gone, Because as long as you have memories, In your heart he lives on." "My child, don't you know I care, I won't give you more than you can bear, Life and Death are my choice, Trust my wisdom and rejoice." "Wipe away the tear from your eye, For there's no longer need to cry, My son died so you could have eternal life, Now he's with me in Paradise." "I am the King, for each life I have a plan, I hold your future in the palm of my hand, I'm the Good Shepherd and I know my own, You are never forsaken or left alone." "I know you loved him, but I love him more, I held his hand and gently led him thru the door, He's more alive now than he was before, He's happier now than he's ever been, In this perfect world without hurt or sin." "Asleep? No! We walked together today, And he watched you as you knelt to pray, He smiled and said, "rhey miss me you know, Do they understand why I had to go? I loved them and I know they loved me. Tell them I'm happy, tell them I'm free, It's wonderful here, and don't weep for me. We'll soon be together for eternity." GOd never makes mistakes, His hand is on US all, He alone decides when and who to call, Apart for only awhile, he'd gone one step before, So he can stand beside Jesus and meet you at Heaven's door. We express our heartfelt thanks to the many neighbors, friends and rela- tives for all the prayers, concerns, food, memorials, for the caring and sharing of tears and hugs at this very difficult time in our lives. We are so proud to live in this wonderful Christian community. Thanks to First English Lutheran ladies for serving lunch, Larson Funeral Home for their wonderful compassion to our family. Thanks to Father Andy and Pastor Hermanson for their many comfort- ing words GOd bless each and every one of you. We love you dearly.
