Charles Lindsley Genthner

When I am gone, release me, let me go.

You musn’t tie yourself to me with tears.

Just be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess,

How much you gave to me in happiness.

I thank you for the love you each have shown,

But now it’s time I traveled alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,

Then let your grief be comforted by trust.

It’s only for a while that we must part,

So bless the memories within your heart.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on,

So if you need me, call, and I will come.

Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near.

And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear

All of my love around you, soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,

I’ll greet you with a smile, and say

“Welcome Home.”

Don and I just found out about Charles passing away. We are on the reunion committee for our 50th reunion for H.Grady Spruce on November 3, 2018. Charles will be added to our memory video and we would like to tell his family we are so sorry for your loss. May God wrap his loving arms around each of you and give you the comfort that only he can give.......
