**excerpt from You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until You come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be.
Brian, Dad and our Bobba,
You raised us up many times throughout the years allowing us to be strong but lending your strength when needed. It is your love, your strength and our knowledge of your faith that will continue to hold us up.
Rae, Alex, Sarah-Jane, Martha, Stan, Emma, Greg, and Benjamin
