Homage to John Gordon Rosenbauer - 1962 to 2007

Into my life he did come.
He added some mystery and some fun.
Course and gruff did he appear on the outside,
but gentle and kind hearted was he truly inside.

Hard working, talented and loved by all.
Always there to help you, just give him a call.
Easy to talk to always ready to listen no matter what it might be
Truly no greater friend was there to me.

My world is now saddened and full of sorrow you see
For my friend has now left us, gone to a better place has he.
God has called him to come to His side.
Up to His Kingdom in Heaven the Lords Angels were his guide.


Fear not for he has not left us all alone in our sorrow,
for he is always with us in each and every tomorrow.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
he is the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
he is the soft stars that shine at night.


Do not be selfish and mourn for you loss,
But be gladdened and happy for to a better place did he cross.
In God’s loving arms is he now embraced,
His troubles and woes will no longer need to be faced.


Speaking of us all to God is what he will do.
To ask Our Lord to Shine down upon us and fill us with his Grace.

May you Rest in Peace.

    I eerily received an e mail from Johns former e mail address today. How it was generated is a mystery…… If John could read my reply it would simply say ….

    I love you and miss you terribly.

    Just now finding out about John’s passing through my cousin. One of those real nice, intelligent, soft-spoken fellows I went through High School with. I am sure he also grew to be a fine young man. I will pray for John & his family.
