The Ship (Parable of Immortality)

I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails in the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says, there she goes!”

Gone Where? Gone from my sight… that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.


And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There she goes!,” there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, “There she comes!”

- Henry Jackson van Dyke (1852-1933)

In his best days, I remember him being so full of love. He would always greet us with the biggest smile and boisterous "Hey!" He once worked at Firestone. He was a great salesman. I told Mamaw (his mother) that I needed new tires and she told me to talk to Robert. I took my car up there and he was able to adjust the price to something I could afford by using his employee discount. While I was there, he sold so much stuff to people. When I think of a salesman, I always think of Robert. He had other passions that kept him from reaching his best potential but his passions were honest and sometimes very beautiful. He left behind a beautiful, intelligent son named Jason who I have always adored. Life has given him many things to handle and he has always handled them admirably. I will always remember Robert at his best and will continue to love and cherish Jason and his family.

Precious Robert was the prettiest little boy. He had that dark curly hair and those big brown eyes and a smile always on his face.... He was such a sweet person. Kind to everyone... He had many trials to face on earth but I am sure he is in Heaven right now with his glorious Lord and Savior and precious family members that have gone on before him. Bless his heart he was a good man with a good heart. God never turns his back on us, he is always there waiting for us to return home to him with open welcome arms. Rest in peace Dear Robert.
Love, Your cousin, Debra

Even with so much loss, Frodo finds that he still never runs out of tears.
