  1. I’m Free
    Author: Unknown

    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 left undone must stay that way,
    I’ve found that peace at the close of day.

    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 will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow:
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full I’ve savored much,
    Good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all to 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.

    Dear Family:
    We are sorry we can’t be with you in this time of grief. We wish we could, We have even talked about it. So our prayers are with you on this day and the days ahead. Love Douglas Jr. and Christina Franks
