Rex Belshaw

A little while … Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow … Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I’ve only gone to rest a little while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am, but as I used to be. Because I will remember you all and look on with a smile, understand in your hearts I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Survivors include his loving parents Leon and Beverly; devoted siblings Jim McLaughlin (Lori), Barry McLaughlin (Anna), Dorothy Ochsner, Deena Rohrback (John) and Dana Polfliet (Jason); and fiancée Ann Mari Gantenbien.
