The family that is living in Apartment #2 are from North Georgia. Their daughter, Tiffany, is a double lung transplant patient. Her care givers are her mom, Missy, her dad, Harry, and her grandma, Lola. Mary had the opportunity to meet Harry yesterday for the first time. And he presented her with the most wonderful gift, a poem he had written straight from his heart. It expresses everything that has been in our hearts from the beginning and it expresses it SO WELL. Thank you, Harry!
With sincere happiness upon your face
you welcomed us home,
to your place.
This place before we had never seen,
so cozy and homey,
was spotlessly clean.
So difficult a journey we had to begin
was made much easier
when you welcomed us in.
Your sincere desire to help those in need
was to us far beyond
a simple good deed.
When in prayer we asked, “God what can we do?”
He answered with a miracle
and He sent it through you.
We were strangers, yet you opened your door
Our burden you lifted
we carried it no more.
For in years gone by you had traveled this road
now through you “WE FOUND REST”
with your gift of abode.
From your “hope and prayers” now we find
solace and comfort
sweet PEACE OF MIND.
The passing of your son, to you so dear
leave you memories of him
still perfectly clear.
You determined yourself with this gift to try
to give life to his memories
and never let them die.
You have chosen to ease the burden and help bear the cross
to even a stranger
who might suffer such loss.
Your help to our family and this daughter’s sweet mother
obeys CHRIST’s commandment
to love one another.
With generosity you help bind us together
in this dwelling and in our hearts.
JEFFREY “JEFF” CAMPBELL EVANS….
lives on forever.
God bless you,
With thankful heart sincerely,
Harry A. Ward
