Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I’m 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 peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it up with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh, yes these things I too will 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 one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too 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! -Author unknown
To say goodbye is not the end To all my family and friends For life goes on, you must endure For my eternity is sure. Remember all the good times The memories we’ve shared The precious jewels of laughter The tender love and care. I found my resting place God’s peace surrounds my soul Let love abound in all your hearts Let heaven be your goal.
Little did we know that morning, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone. For part of us went
with you, the day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide. And although we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. -Author unknown
A heart of gold stopped beating, Two shining eyes at rest, God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best, God knows you had to leave us, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day He took you home. To some you will be forgotten, To others, just part of the past, But to us who loved and lost you, Your memory will always last.
