The Other Side of The Rainbow

The Other Side of The Rainbow
Yesterday 6/28/2010 at 5:30 pm my dad made the journey to the other side of the rainbow.
James Elisher Johnson  10/26/1923-6/28/2010
We are sad yet we did not want him to linger in suffering or pain.
These,  the colors of the rainbow in his blessed long life are as follows,
Red because red was his favorite color,
Orange because the colors of the sunset over the muddy river was beautiful to him,
Yellow because sunflowers are yellow and this represents all 4 of his sunny children,
Green is for the grass that was rich and green on the banks of the river, 
Blue is for the color of his eyes so bright and mischievous,
Indigo is for the deep richness of his love for my beautiful mother in their 68 years together,
Violet is for the place he is now , a place of peace and contentment on
The Other Side of The Rainbow

I read about this in your July 4th post in Angela's Whispers.I couldn't comment there, so I'll comment here.

Be thankful that God placed him into your life. Be thankful for the length of time you had to love. The pain of missing him will go on for what seems forever, but hold the happy memories that reside within your heart in a tight grasp.

I lost my Mom on Mother's Day many years ago. I think she knew how to make a memorable exit. Hold onto the happy, loving, memories.

God Bless
