"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free! I followed the plan God laid for me. I saw His face, I heard His call, I took His hand and left it all. I could not stay another day, to love, to laugh, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. And if my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss … Ah yes, these things I too, shall miss. My life's been full, I've savored much, good times, good friends, a loved one's touch. Be not burdened with tears of sorrow. Enjoy the sunshine of the 'morrow."
