O.K. I'll fess up, I 'borrowed' a quote from someone's In Memory page and unfortunately it got deleted and I can't remember where I got it. It is short and goes something like:

'To live in the hearts of those that remain, is not to die' and I believe it is a quote from Thomas Campbell???

Would the person that has that quote confirm it for me please.

Many thanks - I promise to copy it to my own personal file this time.

Hi Betty,

If you can't find it you are more than welcome to use the poem I have on my In Memory page:


Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what's to be
A resting place along the road to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys, different paths along the way.

We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay.

Our destination is a place far greater than we know
For some the journey's quicker; for some the journey's slow

And when the journey finally ends, we'll claim a great reward,

And find an everlasting peace together with the Lord.

Hi Anita,

I just moved the graphics around a little and then cropped it. I've attached it to this message for you.

Edit: That's just the picture. You have to link it to your own referral url, which you will find under Subsription /Referral Program.

I liked the quote, so I googled it and found this:
From article in THE BEACON telling of a helicopter crash in Newfoundland March 19, 2009.

'To live in the hearts of those that remain, is not to die' Thomas Campbell


. We are bonded by grief and the common life we share. As the old saying goes, "death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."
