Alyce R. Powell – Guestbook Entries
I can not believe that Alyce is gone. I have been looking for her for so long. I put her name into the computer so many times, but today I find she has passed away. I am so sorry for all of you. Alyce and I go way back, when we were teenagers. We were crazy teenagers, and I am sure we drove her father crazy, So sorry Ron. If I was not at her house, in N. Tonawanda, NY she was at mine on Grand Island, NY. I so wish we could have seen each other again.
Know that my thoughts are with all of you
You were a wonderful person once i got to know you, you have inspired me to fight for whatever it maybe! You are greatly missed by many and loved so much! You are a guardian angel now watching over all of us. Love and miss our talks.
Aunt Alyce I miss talking to you especially when it was out on the back porch. Im always thinking about you even if your not here in body but spirit. I love u very much.
Aunt Alyce you'll be missed but not forgotten! I prayed for you here on Earth and look forward to the day when we'll meet again in heaven. I love you!
Uncle Dave and Aunt Jackie
We are so sorry, I wish we could be with you at this time. Always know we are here for you's if you ever need us. I had this poem and really thought it might bring some peace to you all. I am honored I was able to meet your mother, she was a beautiful woman and your Uncle was honored she asked him to dance at your wedding! We love you!!!!
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
