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 him call I turned my back and left it all…..

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 to brief…don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. God wanted me now. He set me FREE……
