Steamboat Springs "Rains that soaked our earth the night you were called to your Heavenly home,
Were but angels' tears of joy welcoming you to the gateway of the far beyond.
They gently took you by your hands to follow the golden path over the great divide,
To begin your wondrous journey to the place where eternal life is forever more,
A place free of aches and pains, never more weariness or tiredness.
The green lush hills of grass, mountains of towering pines, songs of heavenly birds,
Where nights are never more, where never a storm will rage in cloudless sapphire skies,
Until the day comes to make the journey and meet you at that special place in Heaven,
I'll walk on alone until reaching the fork in the road of life that leads to where you are,
So wait for me my husband, for someday I'll come, we will be together again forever."
We wish to thank those who expressed their sympathy and reached out to comfort us at the time of our loss of our husband and father. We want each and everyone to know how much we appreciated your caring, whether it was a card you sent, food brought to our home and to the meal the day of the service, and especially for the donations to the memorial fund. The fund will go toward the planting of a blue spruce tree and a donation to the Routt County Historical Society for our hall here in Toponas. Both will be in Howard's memory. We sincerely thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.
The family of Howard Kirby
