SAYING GOOD-BYE

I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me.. Now I’m free.
I’m following the path that God has 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, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I’ve found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remember joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah, yes these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief;
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me…
God wanted me now; He set me free.


Good-bye Dad! I love you and you've gotten your peace!

My deepest sympathies to you, your husband and the entire family. Losing a loved one on a holiday is hard. Yet, you have much to be thankful for and this will be a reminder.

My Dad passed away on Christmas Eve in 1993. A life well lived, as that of your Father in Law. Each year brings fond rememberances.

My best to you as you work through the funeral and grieving process.

My sympathies to you and your family. The loss of a loved one is never easy. But it is only a seperation until we are all together again. Take care.
