Thank You For Your Support!

Pat Smiley and I thank you for your support of our Memorial Day fundraiser and efforts to promote his and Richard Johnson’s book, “Frankford Heroes, 2nd Edition”! If you’ve been busy or just didn’t quite get to ordering their book, you can still do so and we will still honor our pledge of 20% of book sales to be split between St. Mark’s Church and the Catholic Daughters’ Matthew 25 Food Cupboard. You will still get the ebook edition, too, for free. This effort will officially end on Friday, June 5. Here’s the link for you to use – https://frankfordgazette.com/books-for-sale/

We have mailed the books to those who ordered and have mailed the donations to St. Mark’s Church and Court St. Francis de Sales #2617 CDA. Every little bit helps!!!

For all of you who have purchased the book since it was available last fall, please check your email as Bob Smiley has emailed you a link to the ebook. Please check your email and let us know if you did not receive one and had purchased a book. We do our utmost to insure our records are accurate but… We hope you enjoy this ebook version, too. If you would like to share your comments about the book and allow us to use them as testimonials, please email gil@frankfordgazette.com

We would appreciate hearing what you think of the book!! Thank you again for your purchase and we look forward to sharing more publications with you that pique your interest. Stay well!

I’M MOVING ON

I’M MOVING ON

You can’t hold me down anymore,
I’ve seen the rich, I’ve seen the poor.
I no longer want to be under your control,
Life is too short, I’m moving on.
Don’t look back because I’ll be gone.
When you can think of me in a better way,
Then I may think if I should stay.
I’ve heard all the stories,
I’ve heard all the songs,
Look for me and I’ll be gone.
Life is too short, I’m moving on.
Love me the way I need to be loved or leave me alone and let me move on.
Life is too short, I’m moving on.

All Is Not Lost

All Is Not Lost

“All is not lost”, said the grandfather to the granddaughter. keep your head up, and keep doing what you doing, cuz all is not lost.

Stay true to yourself, stay safe, and stay at home. Because when the dust settles victory will be ours.

One day I will be able to hold you, and wipe away those tears. No demons nor virus can keep me away but so long, and knowing that nothing can separate us from the word of God, as we walk through this valley of death we will feel no evil, leaning on the word of God.

These are the last words he said to his granddaughter, “stay true to yourself, stay safe, and stay at home”. Then he laid down, before he closed his eyes he turned and said, “all is not lost see you on the other side”.

I NEVER WILL FORGET

 I NEVER WILL FORGET
I’ve seen flowers in the meadow, I’ve seen flowers on the hill,
But  I’ve never seen a flower quite as beautiful as you.
I’ve seen the sun rise in Seattle, I’ve seen the sun rise in New York,
But I’ve never seen a sunrise quite as beautiful as you.
I remember the first day I saw you, that day I never will forget.
You were standing in the sunlight, and your hair was blowing in the wind.
Then you turned and winked at me, something I never will forget.
Then somehow you got lost in the crowd, like the wind you were gone,
I never saw you again.

WHAT YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE

WHAT YOU BELIEVE, YOU BELIEVE

If you believe the world is flat, I’m cool with that.
If you believe money grows on trees, I’m cool with that.
If you believe the moon is made of Swiss cheese, I’m cool with that.

I don’t think I’ve been put on this Earth to be unkind,
To think what is yours and what is mine.

All the changes that we go through, Listen my sister and my brother,
You can’t change me and I can’t change you.

So the bottom line, blue is blue. So let’s get it together and agree,
I can’t change you and you can’t change me.

Let’s not stress over what should and should not be,
I can’t change you and you can’t change me.

But this one thing we must agree. blue is blue and money don’t grow on trees, and I’m cool with that. Can we agree?
