My Mother asked us to read this at her Memorial Service she first heard it at her very best friends' Memorial Service. I lost my job and was free to take her for all her appointments and treatments. We were closer in her last year then we had been in my other 62. She sent me a thank you card I will cherish the rest of my life, I told her "I am your son I am suppose to help and assist you, that's a son's job." She was a young lady during WWII and I played CDs of the era music whenever we went out for her Cancer Care etc.

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,
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.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve 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.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
I’m with God now, I’ve been set free.
