Don't grieve for me for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me.

If my parting has left a void then fill it with remembered joy,
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, oh yes these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with time of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much….good friends….good times….a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief…don‘t lengthen it now with undue grief.
God wanted me now. He set me FREE ...
