It’s sometimes hard to know why some things happen as they do for so much joy and happiness was centered around you It seems so hard to comprehend that you’re no longer here but all the happy memories will help keep you near

You’re thought about with pride, Son with each mention of your name death cannot change a single thing  the love will still remain 

                                                           Love Always,    Momma

 

                                                                      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 his call.  I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, to play.  Tasks left undone must stay that way, I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy.  A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, ah 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 you heart and share with me, God wanted me now.  He set me free.

                                                                             Love ya, 

                                                                              CJ
