“I’m There Inside Your Heart”
Right now I’m in a different place,
And although we seem apart,
I’m closer than I ever was…
I’m there inside your heart.
I’m with you when you greet each day
And while the sun shines bright,
I’m there to share the sunsets, too…
I’m there with you every night.
I’m with you when the times are good,
To share a laugh or two,
And if a tear should start to fall…
I’ll still be there for you.
And when that day arrives
That we no longer are apart,
I’ll smile and hold you close to me…
Forever in my heart.

    Dear Penny, I don’t have any words that can make this tragedy better. I do know that Jesus is there to wrap His arms around you and even though there is no earthly comfort. Those of us that knew Kris knew what a fine young man he was. I still smile whenever I get a piece of mail at school after all this time. We will be praying for you and for his fiancé that the Lord will give you comfort and peace. In His great grace, Jeri Key

    Penney, I wanted to take the time to write on Kris's guest book. No matter how hard you try the words just never come easy. I look at his picture and I see so much of Sammy and you in his face those eyes have the same Sparkle and you can see the kindness. I am so very sorry for your loss God has gained another beautiful angel and the reunion that's going on is something that I Minds cannot even comprehend. As an angel mom myself I know that I live in strive each and every day to where we can be together again when Jesus decides that it's our time. There's not a doubt in my mind the kindness and the love that he had for other people, because knowing Uncle Bill and Aunt Peg as well as you as his mother you know that he showed it and gave it so very freely. Just remember my sweet cousin that I love you I wish I had had the pleasure of getting to know Kris, however someday that will happen. Sending you all of my love your cousin Rosie from Evansville Indiana.
