Prelude to Committal:




“Blessed are the pure of heart,

For they shall see God.”

(Matt. 5:8)

In loving memory of Jenkins Oliver

14 August 1999 – 10 August 2012

Called by Jesus to his final resting place,

Our precious darling in the Lord’s embrace.

“This is the promise He hath promised us,

Even eternal life.” (1 John 2:25)

Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,

Look upon this little shild,

 With Jesus forever.

“Let the little children come to me

And do not hinder them

For to such belong the kingdom of heaven.”


“I’ll lend you for a little time,

Jenkins, a child of mine.”,

God said,

“for you to love the while he lives

& mourn when he is dead.

It may just be a few year & ten

And two or three,

But will you ‘til I call him back

Take care of him for me.

He’ll bring his smile to gladden you,

But should his stay be brief,

You’ll have his lovely memories,

As solace for your grief.”

“Dear Lord,

Thy will be done,

For all the joy this child shall bring,

The risk of grief we’ll run.

We’ll love him while we may

& for the Jenkins we’ve known,

Not forever granted stay,

But should the angels call for him

Much sooner than we planned,

We’ll brave the bitter grief so dim

& try to understand.


A friendship shared,

A laugh, a kiss,

Oh, yes, these things Jenkins too will miss.

Be burdened not in times of sorrow,

Jenkins wishes you the sunshine of tomorrow.

Jenkins’ life, though short, was full,

He savoured much:

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps Jenkins’ time seemed all too brief

To lengthen now with undue grief.

Life up your hearts & pray, will thee;

God came for Jenkins & set him free.

Oh, please, don’t feel low,

It was Jenkins’ time to go.

Jenkins know you’re feeling low

& the tears just seem to flow.

We come to earth for a lifetime

& for some it’s not many years.

Jenkins sees you are crying

& shedding so many tears.

Jenkins hasn’t really left,

Although it may seem so,

But is in his heavenly home

& is closer than you know.


I know our happiness shouldn’t depend on anyone

& that we have the choice to be happy or sad,

But sometimes I can’t help feeling sad.


Jenkins is gone.

The world was not good enough for him.


Said the angels to the Lord above,

This special child, Jenkins, will need much love.

He’ll require extra care

From the folks over there.

He may not laugh or play

& his thoughts may seem far away.

In many ways he won’t adapt

& he’ll be known as handicapped.

So let’s be careful who is sent.

We want his life to be content.

Please, Lord, find those loving folk who

Will do a special job for you.

She will not realize right away

The leading role she’s asked to play,

But with this child from above

Comes stronger faith & deeper love.


Jenkins went on ahead of us

& we’ve got to understand

You must release the ones you love

& let God take their hand.


When you feel the gentle breeze

Or the wind upon your face,

That’s Jenkins giving you a great, big hug

Or just a soft embrace.

And when it was time for him to go

From his body to be free,

Remember he wasn’t going,

He was coming to God in Heaven, see,

And Jenkins will always love us

From that land in Heaven way up above

& will be in touch again soon.

P.S. God sends His love.


Some things Jenkins’d like to say,

But first of all to let you know that he arrived okay.

He’s writing this from Heaven

Where he dwells with God above,

Where there’s no more tears or sadness,

There is just eternal love.

That day Jenkins had to leave

When his life on Earth was through,

God picked him up & hugged him

& said, “Jenkins, I welcome you.”

It’s good to have you here,

Though you were missed while you were gone,

As for your dearest family,

They’ll be here later on”.

When you think of Jenkins’ life on earth

& all those loving years,

They’re bound to bring you tears,

But do not be afraid to cry,

It does relieve the pain,

As there’d be no flowers,

Unless there was some rain.”


Sadly lit’l Jenks passed away.

I am very sad,

But have made peace that he is with the Lord now.


At least he has gone straight to the Lord.

Heaven cried tears

By means of the rain.
