Blessings, Pam and Don Pam Grace Phillips, January 8, 2009 There will come a day when the tears of sorrow will softly flow into tears of remembrance...and your heart will begin healing itself...and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy...and you will hear the whisper of hope. There will come a day when you will welcome the tears of remembrance...as a sun shower of the soul...a turning of the tide...a promise of peace. There will come a day when you will...risk loving...go on believing...and treasure the tears of remembrance. All those sleeping in their graves will wake up and sing for joy. As the sparkling dew refreshes the earth, so the Lord will revive those who have long been dead."-Isa. 26:19 JOSEPH EDWARD SHELLMAN, January 8, 2009 DEAR BOOHER FAMILY; DR BOOHER WILL BE MISSED HE WAS ONE OF MY DRS AT BONHAM VA A SUPPER GREAT DR.
