“Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I’m following the path God has laid for me. I took His hand when I heard Him call I walked with Him and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work, or play. Things left undone must stay that way I found my peace at the end of the day. If my parting has left a void then fill it with remembered joy. Family love, a laugh, a kiss Oh yes, these too I will miss. Perhaps you think it was all too brief. Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee God wanted me now; He set me free.”
