“From Now Til Then”

-          Vinnie Sanford


When you wake at morning light your life is new, no need to fight. And when the sun moves into noon, your life begins to live in full bloom. But as daylight begins to dim, night’s promised grasp is sure to win as today begins to die, the sun goes down without goodbye. But few of fate need not be had; the promise God gave...hold on to that. And when our dawn turns into dusk, this day the eve of midnight is lost and when our now turns into them, our day is done, tis reached its end. But as you breathe just one last breath, eternal life comes after death. But live this day that we call life, with no regret no wonder why; tis when you wake at Heaven’s door, your life will be forever more.

    Vin, it's been so hard...I'll never forget the 80s with you, walking to church at 630am thru the snow, going to Latin Mass, helping you set up the live Xmas tree you brought home every year, watching So-So climb up it and knock it down...the memories are ongoing, I'll never forget....
