Dedicated in remembrances to Joe Mountain,

 who passed on September 9, 2002,

a wonderful brother and best of friends.






God looked around His garden         

And He found an empty place.

He then looked down upon

This earth and saw your tired face.


He put His arms around you

And lifted you to rest.

God's garden must be beautiful,

He always takes the best.


He new that you were in great pain.

He knew that you would never

Get well on earth again.

So He closed your weary eyelids


And whispered, "Peace Be Thine."

He then took you up to Heaven with

His hands so gentle and kind.

It broke our hearts to lose you,


But you did not go alone.

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.


Joe, you will be missed by all who loved you.

 Even though your body is gone,

your spirit will live forever in our hearts.
