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 my name...... I turned my back and left it all I could not stay another day, to to laugh, to love, to play All tasks undone must stay that way I’m at home at the close of day If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy A kiss shared, a laugh and all the many friendships, are the things I will miss the most Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you all the sunshine tomorrow My Life was FULL, I loved my family, had good times and sad, great Friends and the touch of my LOVE...
