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. This is a journey that we all must take, And each must go alone. It’s all a part of the Master’s Plan. It’s 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!

I just heard about Marion's passing. I worked with Marion at PWU. We had many ups and downs but mainly working with her was a blast! After her retirement, we occasionally talked on the phone. Will miss her lively conversations. Hope she finds her loved ones in Scottish heaven!
