I Am Free
Dont grieve for me, for now Im free,
Im following the path God laid for me;
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembering joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Oh, yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with time of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been full, Ive savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved ones
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Dont lengthen it now with undo grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now He set me free.
Lovingly Submitted,
The Family

My purpose in life is not to serve
myself, but to serve God and his
I thank each, and every one of

day, and I pray that in some way
I have touched your life in a
positive way.
I hope you felt encouraged, when
you needed encouragement.
I hope you felt Love, when you
needed to be Loved.
I hope you felt comforted, when
you needed to be comforted.
I Love you all, and I thank God for
sparing your life today so we
could Rejoice together.
