Thank YOU

Our beautiful warrior
died this morning
in the loving arms of his Mom
Debbie Koenig
He now soars with the angels
Dance baby boy
ride on the wings of the Eagle
soar on.
21 years old
a life lived with zest, passion, kindness and right-way relations.
An Angel flying too close to the ground.
His life, his eyes, his breaths
loved by thousands.
God Bless you Debbie, our arms are around you and our thoughts surround you.
Gone Too Soon
I would like to take a moment to say
to all for each kindness that you extend, not only to me,
for all the many candles, the thoughts and prayers for 
Thomas, his mom Debbie,
for Ali and her Dad,
for EE how is dealing with so many and major health issues in CO,
for the prayers and thoughts that 
take the time to extend!
for this day
to thank YOU
for being mindful in your lives;
to stop by here
and if there is one word that perhaps allows you to pay it forward in any way to another
I thank you for that.
This beautiful day is here just so bright we should all put our shades on as we step into our grateful place.
If there are any amends that need to be made, hurry and make them
but MEAN IT,
there is beauty to be seen,
magic to be made,
wonders to be discovered.
TIME waits for no one
and we are so blessed
in so many ways
even in moments of heartache
and times of trouble
if we but pause and count the blessings that are ours!
I thank each of you
for your gifts,
for your light
May the Creator shine on you brightly, you have been given all that you will ever need to be more than you can ever imagine.
And so it is!
 Many blessings to you and yours
today and always.

The fire is burning brightly,
the sage is in the air
for all who gather here
and all in the prayer bowl.

Thank YOU for your beautiful words
of comfort and wisdom .
My heart aches deeply for Thomas' family.. his journey of everlasting
peace and joy has began, and for sure he is finally free of the pain and devastations on cancer.
The journey for his beloved Mom and family, all that were close in heart to him is also beginning..
my hope for them is strong that they will know Thomas' has not truly left them, he is now just
" heartbeat away"..
blessings abound for all of our warriors today,
It is a most gorgeous day to
enjoy, to pay it forward and to
reflect on the many blessings I
have been gifted..
S♥T♥O♥M♥P !!
hugging my angels, ever so close
Happy Father's Day !
sign me, A.

Dear Thomas and Mom, Thomas will always be with you wherever you go. My arms are wrapped around both of you. Debbie I hope you will stay strong and I do hope you will keep in touch to let us know how you are doing. Our hearts are broken for the loss of Thomas. We do know the angels came and took him to a better place and there will be no more pain. The pain will be in our hearts for a long time. We all feel as if looking into those beautiful brown eyes that he was saying it is alright, I will be fine. He knew that we are all holding him tight in our hearts and prayers. Debbie may God Bless You for being his Mom and always being there for him. Blessings to all this beautiful Sunday morning.

Thank you Dr. Sherry for your words today that touch so many hearts who stop by here. My heart is heavy today for Debbie Koenig, Thomas' Mom and his furry friend Seamus and all who knew him and of his journey. I pray that hearts will be lifted and comforted knowing that this young man, who we have gotten to know, is now pain and worry free and in a place of love, beauty and continued peace. We know that Thomas is forever in our hearts and watching over those he loved and who loved him. May we always remember the courage and love of this young man. Debbie, my prayers are for you this day and the days ahead. May God comfort and protect you and bring you peace like you have never known. We sure have grown to love you Debbie, as we have Thomas and Seamus, and we are here for you. Prayers for Ali, her Father and children. Wishing your Father a Happy Father's Day Ali! For our dear friend EE, may you be Blessed with comfort and be pain free from your illness! To all those who were listed here I prayed for you as I read over each name.
I wish for all the Father's here today a very Happy Father's Day. For those, like me, that no longer have their Father here on this earth remember he is forever in your heart and always watching over you.

I wish for each one here a very happy Sunday and may you be at peace as you count your many Blessings this day. \Sandy♥
