We have lost some friends along the way.

Many people will walk in 
and out of your life,

leave footprints in your heart.

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing 

of the elder patriarch of the
Red Rag Gang.

Dale Sider's father left us

Murray Sider

Don't think of him as gone away,
his journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.

Think of how he must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

He was never one to miss a party.
Gone, but never far away from his family and friends.

Weep Not For Me
 By an Unknown Author

Weep not for me though I have gone Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long Upon my soul's sweet flight I am at peace, my soul's at rest There is no need for tears For with your love I was so blessed For all those many years There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear is now all gone Put now these things out of your thoughts In your memory I live on Remember not my fight for breath Remember not the strife Please do not dwell upon my death But celebrate my life
