Prayers for Bruce

I think I speak for all CHiPs fans when I say our hearts and prayers go out to Bruce Penhall and his family. His 21-year old son Connor was killed by a drunk driver last night. I offer this poem to the Penhall family on behalf of all “CHiPs” fans.  May God Bless you all during this terrible time.

Weep not for me
Remember the laughter, the affection, the joy
not just the recent tears.
Cherish the memories, our hopes and dreams.
Hold fast to the love that we shared.
Be happy with the time we spent together
and being anew.
For I am not really gone,
I am closer than ever before.
As the morning sun rises
and throughout the busy day…I am with you.
Until the setting sun disappears on the horizon
and we watch the day turn into night…I am here.
You may feel a faint breeze stir round your head, while you slumber
as I gently kiss your forehead, “Good night.”
The stars that shine so brightly in my heavenly sky
help me watch over you and keep you from harm.
I am the wind in the trees
and the song of a bird.
I am moonbeams in a midnight sky
and a glorious rainbow after the storm.
I am morning dew
and freshly-fallen snow.
I am a butterfly flying overhead
and a puppy happily at play.
I am a smile on a stranger’s face
a gentle touch
a warm embrace.
Listen to the wind for my message of love.
Watch the sun rise and set in the sky with me.
Feel my essence encircle you with warm memories.
Open your heart to know…I am not gone.
Reach deep into your soul…You will find me.
I am here.
Have no fear.
I am with you,

  13. Bruce and family:

    My heart breaks for the pain and suffering this senseless act has caused you. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. I pray that you find peace and comfort from family and friends, and that you can remember your son with a smile for all the joy he brought you in his short time on this earth.

  14. I posted this on TCC months back around Easter concerning the loss of Connor Penhall. The true meaning of Easter is brought home even more this year with the tragedy of Bruce Penhall’s son. Jesus died so that we could have everlasting life & that Bruce will one day be reunited with his son in Heaven. My prayers go out to the Penhall family. Such a tragedy.

  15. Thumb up!!!
