S: In Loving Memory of Teresa Marie Mulherin-McLeod
BC: No More Tears Beyond the Gate Someone new has entered Our eternal home above. The heavenly gate has opened wide To welcome the one I love. We cannot help the tears that fall, Our hearts need time to grieve When earthly life has ended & my loved one has to leave. Yet even in the saddest times, We know our Savior lives & we can trust completely In the promise that He gives; That in a glad reunion With the Lord, our loved one waits To welcome us in joy With no more tears beyond the gate.

1: This album is dedicated to Darric & Jocelyn in loving memory of their mother, Teresa Marie (Mulherin) McLeod | I Am Here I will be your light in darkness; I will catch you when you fall. I will heal the wounds you suffer; I will hear you when you call. I will hold you when you cry; I will dry your many tears. I will stay when others leave you; I will comfort all your fears. But there is one thing I will not do- No matter what you say, I will never stop my love for you Because I am here and here I'll stay. My love is unconditional, unlike the world you live. Now rest, My Child. The good will come. This promise to you I give.

13: The Story of Mom & Dad | Dad started dating Mom in the summer of 1968. He just couldn't believe how easy it was to be with someone that was so cute and easy-going. However, Dad broke up with her just before her birthday in '69 since he thought he needed to broaden his horizons...that, and he didn't want to buy her a gift! Fate couldn't keep them apart though, and they got back together in 1971. | Dad proposed to Mom at Becky & Terry Prusha's wedding rehearsal, right outside the Methodist church (that is the happy couple above at Becky's wedding, December 19, 1971) They wed in September of '13. Dad purchased the family farm (on the NorthEast corner of the intersections of Hwys 21 & 30) and that is where Mom & Dad began their family. Darric was to be born December 26, 1975. Mom was big as a house, according to Dad, but he never told her that!!! In those days, the husbands didn't go into the delivery rooms, so when Dad saw Mom, she was coming from there, all smiles as she normally was. He noticed a while later that she had spelled Darric's name wrong on the birth certificate, but she said that's how she thought it was supposed to be spelled. Jocelyn was born April 16, 1978; spelled as it was in the book of baby names where they found it.
