Goodbye my friend…



Today we say goodbye

To our old faithful friend

The memories of his gentle spirit

Will certainly never end


His smile was contagious

His laughter was adored

It was an honor to know him

His mere presence a reward


Life will surely go on

But it will never be the same

For without our beautiful friend

We will suffer tremendous pain


We miss you so much already

And we will never forget

The love you showed to others

We will forever recollect


You’re in our father’s house now

Somewhere up above

We leave you in his care

And remember you in love


Written by, Michelle Cook


In loving memory of Terry Breuscher.  We will forever love and miss you dear friend.

  6. Thanks Dorinda… They certainly do! He was a blessing to so many and a very God honoring man. It’s hard to understand why he had to go now. He was close to my age and it just leaves me to wonder why. He leaves behind a teenage daughter and his lovely wife Amy. Please keep both of them in your prayers.


  7. I cannot imagine how difficult that must be. I will say prayers…
