In memory of our mother:

My Last Party

When you come to my last party
Don't come with faces long,
But come with memories that are pleasant,
In your heart, let there be a song.
The place will be full of flowers,
And I will be dressed grand.
The only thing I shall be sorry for:
I will not be able to shake your hand.
When you come to my last party,
Whenever that may be,
The daily paper will print the invitations
That everyone might see.
I am going to hold it in a church-like place,
And no one will be turned away.
At the place where I hold my party
Many of my friends will come to pray.
When you come to my last party,
We won't play any games,
But there will be a register
Where you may sign your name.
As you stand there and sing my praises
In voices so silently,
Telling each other or thinking
Of what good things you know about me.
When you come to my last party,
My Lord will host,
Because 'tis he 'mongst all my friends
Who really loves me most.
He bore my cross at Calvary.
He bears my cross today.
When you leave He will still be with me
To comfort me on my way.
When you come to my last party,
In spirit I'll be there,
And as you remember times with me
I will know that you care.
And when you say that I am at peace,
That is as it should be,
Because at my last party
Who should be at more peace than me?
I did the best that I know how,
It's up to God to take care of me now.
~Bert Price
