She was loved by many friends and family members. I’m Free 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 place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shard, 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.See more See Less
