5: "In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness." - Alex Haley

10: Dedicated to all of our loved ones who have transitioned and are now with the Father The Mansion of Heaven This world, however beautiful was never meant to be the place that we would call our home for eternity. And though we would not choose to leave, a loving God knows best, and in His time, He lifts us to a place of peace and rest. For He has built a mansion where His children will abide, free from pain and sorrow, forever at His side. He said He'd never leave us to face trails alone, and though sometimes we fail Him, He never fails his own. And even when our choices are less than He would ask, He knows when human courage is unequal to the task. We cannot judge what happens, though tears and questions start We only see what's visible - God sees into the heart... And though there may be many things that we cannot explain, we can be sure it breaks His heart to see His children's pain. In loving arms, He bears us to a quiet place apart where He mends the wounded spirit and heals the broken heart. And though these ones we love so much have left our present sight and passed into a better world of majesty and light, someday we'll be together in our Father's home above, Where we'll thank Him for His mercy and praise Him for His love.
