Sorry to hear about your loss
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my husband William Pierce. As many of you know he was the author of the blog site Walk with God. He was the most kind, loving, generous man that I have ever known. Prayers are appreciated during this most difficult time. Thank you.
