Don’t grieve for me, for now I am free,
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.
My life has been full,
I savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Don’t lengthen it now
with undue grief, lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
I am so sorry for your loss. He was an outstanding man who I’m sure touched many lives. I had the utmost respect for my uncle and though I hadn’t seen him in my older years I will always remember him fondly. ❤
