Loving Memory Of Clovis W. Henderson 12/27/1931 to 12/09/2009


IT IS TIME

IT IS TIME December 9th, 2009.
IT IS TIME for our family to gather one by one.
IT IS TIME the Doctors, Nurses, Specialist, and Staff at the Hospital tell us.
IT IS TIME to let him go.
IT IS TIME they kept saying as our family members continue to arrive          

 December 9th, 2009.
IT IS TIME to stop, to turn off all the life support measures and let him go.
IT IS TIME for us to stand by his side, my Mother, my brother, my sister           

 and I to say our goodbyes.
IT IS TIME for us to watch and wait as Doctors, Nurses and staff move           

 Slowly yet steady administering medications through his veins           

 To help him relax and rest.
IT IS TIME as Staff first remove the pacemaker, the respiratory, the               

 Chemicals, drugs to maintain his vital organs.
IT IS TIME for him to leave us and his earthly home.
IT IS TIME for him to be greeted into his heavenly home by his heavenly           

 Father, his Father, Mother, Brothers Melvin, W.C.,
        Kenneth, and James.
IT IS TIME for his family left here on earth to grieve.
IT IS TIME one year later for his family to remember, heal, rejoice
        In his    life with us, as one day he will greet us.
IT IS TIME until we meet again.
