May your spirit be free and led home to our Father through faith in His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ. We hope to see you after the last trumpet sounds. In search of my grandfather, the father of George James Pittman, born July 22, 1921 near Pittsburgh, PA.

I was browsing the internet looking for information on Frances for my family history, when I found this. Margaret is my cousin, and I only had the privilege to meet her once. She was a beautiful and loving woman, and I know she will be missed. I know I'm sorry that I didn't get the time to visit more when I was in Pennsylvania. My love to my family at this time, and may she always be in our hearts.

Miss Me
Miss me, but let me go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free
Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go
For this is a journey that we must all take
And each must go alone
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home
When you are lonely, and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go
