In Memoriam - Ben D. Talamante

In loving memory.

Ben D. Talamante, April 17, 1975-May 26, 1993.

And God said …

I said, “God, I hurt,” and God said, “I know.”

I said, “God, I cry a lot.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you tears.”

I said, “God, I am so depressed.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you sunshine.”

I said, “God, life is so hard.”

And God said, “That is why I gave you loved ones.”

I said, “God, my loved one died.”

And God said, “So did mine.”

I said, “God, it is such a loss.”

And God said, “I saw mine nailed to the cross.”

I said, “God, but your loved one lives.”

And God said, “So does yours.”

I said, “God, where are they now?”

And God said, “Mine is on my right and yours is in the light.”

I said,”“God, it hurts.”

And God said, “I know.”

Still missing you after 17 years.

Love always, Mom and Dad Talamante and family
