Parting is such sweet sorrow Death like life begins the moment we take or GOD imputed our first breath which makes us a living soul We put so much love and life into the years we are given that sets us up for that final sweet parting sorrow We leave behind a legacy of love to the folks we leave behind sometimes only listed by their relationship to us but to the prim and proper both the name as well as the relationship is listed They help us tell the WHOLE Story of our deceased love one A man who gave his all to HIS family faith employer friends and country Taps is played as a MEMORY of the final call to DUTY We bid you adieu with the 21 gun salute but only for the brief moment you cross the footbridge of death to eternal life Now that you've traveled through that veil of sorrow that you can now see through clearly you say to us it's not goodbye just until we meet again I pass God's peace to all of you
