"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 his call even though I didn't want to leave you all. I'd have loved to stay another day to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. God has granted me peace at the close of the day. 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 times of sorrow I wish you sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I've 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, he set me free"
