TRAWICK FAMILY RESOLUTION
IN LOVING MEMORY
James Henry Trawick
JUNE 13, 2013
 
Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away". Romans 21:3-4
 
To The Family of James Henry Trawick:
 
We, the members of the Trawick Family was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our beloved, kind, generous, smiling, distinguished, mannerable, husband, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, friend and family Patriarch, James Henry Trawick (affectionately referred to as Jim Henry or Uncle Jim).
 
WHEREAS, the Trawick Family is very certain that this is not only a heartfelt loss of a dear loving family member, but also a counselor to our family and closest friends.
 
WHEREAS, we concur that this loss is extremely deep and that the sorrow is great when experiencing the death of a loved one, yet at that same time we bow in thankfulness to our  Almighty God that he is now free from this earthly realm and has transitioned into the glory of the Lord.
 
WHEREAS, Jim Henry was a pioneer member of the Trawick Family Reunion and was an avid supporter of our organization with his presence, smile, wit and his finances. Often, at our family business meetings, he was the first participant who would be an example of how to follow leadership. Uncle Jim would show the younger family members the importance of working together as a team and at times having the tenacity to stand for what he or she believed in.
Often times as he shared invaluable Trawick Family history whether in a crowd or just sitting in a chair with one or two relatives, it was quite evident that he was proud and happy to be a descendant of our great family. He was always reaching in his pocket and putting money in family member's hands and had time for the smallest to the eldest relative.
 
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the passing of our beloved "Jim Henry" is the will of the Almighty God and there is a human tie that has been broken which leaves our hearts in agony and pain. We are encouraged and have consolation in the words of Jesus, who said, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee”.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, the Trawick Family will always remember our dear loved one with joyous memories and happy times that he shared with our family while he was still here on earth.
 
The Trawick Family reunions and gatherings will not be the same without "Uncle Jim". He enjoyed sharing his knowledge, giving sound wisdom and advice to any member our family. Countless stories down through the years he shared with us and he always did so with a smile. Our lives have been so enriched having been surrounded by a great countryman as our "Uncle Jim".
 
Family, let us continue to pray for one another as we find peace and solace for our soul and accept what is the divine will of our Creator.
 
Victoriously Submitted In Love,
Done by the Order of Dr. L. James T. Trawick/The Trawick Family Reunion

One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.Psalm 27:4-5

Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I , and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.  Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used.

  Put no difference in your tone, Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the litle jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me and if you want to , pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that is always was, Let it e spoken without effect,  Without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; There is unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, For an interval, Somewhere very near, Just around the corner.

All is Well

When we celebrate new life or weep over life lost we rise and tell his story. His life imprinted in our memories NEVER to be forgotten we tell the story.
We hear his voice in our own laughter and his song becomes the music of our lives. As we mature and his conviction becomes our own- we rise to tell the story.
 We are comforted by the sweet ASSURANCE that  our daddy  is resting from his labor. He is NEVER forgotten and remains in our hearts always......

A Father's love is something that no one can explain, It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,   It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may for nothing can destroy it or take that love away....

It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, and it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking.... it believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, and it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems.....

it is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, and it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation... A many splendored miracle man cannot understand and another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.

It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone.  A part  of us went with you, The day he called you home.

 A million times we've missed you , A million times we've cried. If love could have saved you, You never would have died.

If tears could build a stairway, and heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again.

A precious one from us is gone,  A voice we love is stiled, A place is vacant in our  home, which never will  be filled. He will not be forgotten, though on earth he is no more. But in memory he is with us, As he always was before.   The Culver Family
