"Many waters have sailed throughout the voyage of life. Over water tranquil, free of pain and strife. Sometimes tossed in raging storms, though never left alone. There was a light that beckoned me towards the shores of home. Always in the distance, this beacon I could see. Giving me direction, as I sailed upon life's sea. My journey is completed now, the tide is drifting in. My vessel moves on gentle waves, eternity begins."          - Light of Peace by Sherrie Bradley Neal
