Has swiftly come and gone
Time passed away forever

You, so fresh and new,
We welcomed into our lives
Only one month ago.
You gave us a brand new year.
Now you leave us forever.

Never, never, never give up. —Winston Churchill
Let your hope sever.
Hang on to your dreams forever,

Death visited last night
It took the body of someone I knew
His earthly tent is now empty
But his spirit lives someplace new
There’s a heavenly mansion above
That Jesus prepared and took him to
Where he’ll dwell forever in peace
Because he believed what was true
We all can join him there
And have our mansion too
We just need to believe and receive
What Jesus did for me and you

In memory of Herman (Rock) Kunneman, a brother in Christ, and former brother-in-law on earth.
In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. –Jesus (John 14:2,3)
For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. (2 Corinthians 5:1)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 )
