CALABAZA -- Delifino In Loving Memoryof Delifino Calabaza November 21, 1946 - March 31, 2003 I am home in Heaven, dear ones; Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever safely home in Heaven at last. And He came Himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread; and with Jesus' arm to lean on could I have one doubt or dread? There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand; Do it now, while life remaineth You shall rest in Jesus' land. When that work is all completed He will gently can you home; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you come! Forever in our hearts. Love, Daphne, Elsie, Fred, Kyle, D.J., LuCynda, Darryl , and Leeya.
