As she would say “I’ll never be free until I reach my final hour”. In tribute to we dedicate this poem, her favorite.
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 undone must stay that way. I've found that peace at the close of the day.
If parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow;I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much;Good friends, good times,a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me --God wanted me now, God set me free.
