Family Tree

That says 

Grieve not for me

Remember the BEST TIMES,

the laughter, the song,

thegood life

I lived while I was STRONG


To those I love

 and those who love me

When I'm gone,

release me, let me go:

I have so many things

 to see and do.

Don't tie yourself

 to me with tears.

Be happy that we had

 so many years.

I gave you love.

You can only guess

 how much

You gave me in happiness.

I thank you for your love

 you each have shown.

But it is time I travel alone.

So grieve awhile for me,

grieve you must:

Then let your grief be

 comforted by trust.

It's only for a little while

 we must part.

So bless the memories

 within your heart.

I won't be far away,

 for life goes on.

So if you need me,

call and I'll come.

Though you can't see

 or touch me, I'll be near.

If you listen with your heart, you'll hear

All my love around you soft and clear.

And then when you must come this way alone,

I will greet you with a smile and a

"Welcome Home"
