Condolences to the family may be emailed to email@example.com IM FREE Dont grieve for me, for now Im free. Im following the path God has laid you see. 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 or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found my peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joys, a friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, O yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. My lifes been full, Ive savored much, good friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Dont lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee. God wanted me now; He set me free.
