We remember and honor those who have traveled with Heavenly Journeys.

Dr. Warren L. Kirkley  
Warren L. Kirkley, DVM, 75, passed on May 17, 2006. He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. Dr. Kirkley thoroughly enjoyed raising roses and loved all domestic and free animals of all kinds. He appreciated God's universe and felt a peace and excitement in knowing man's explorations of space have just begun.

In October 2006, Dr. Warren L. Kirkley's cremated remains traveled on Heavenly Journeys pioneer flight. This flight holds special meaning for all of us at Heavenly Journeys because Dr. Kirkley was a member of our extended family. We are saddened and proud that Dr. Kirkley was our pioneer flier.

Richard Odom was a young man with a passion for photography, especially the Organ Mountains near his home, Las Cruces, New Mexico. We would like to thank his family for allowing Heavenly Journeys to use Richard’s photographs.
 
   

 

High Flight
by John Gillespie Magee

Oh I have slipped the surely bonds of earth
and danced the skies on laughter silvered wings.
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun split clouds
and done a hundred things you have not dreamed of,
wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.

Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind aloft
and flung my eager craft through footless halls ofair.
Up up the long delirious burning blue,
I've topped the wind swept heights with easy grace
where neither lark nor eagle flew.

And there with silent lifting mind I've trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Written by John Gillespie Magee when he was a 19 year old fighter pilot during WWII - as he soared into the atmosphere during a high altitude test flight of a Spitfire V. Magee died three months later in a mid-air collision.
