    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 found that peace at the close of day.
    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it up 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 the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I 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!

    Aunt Peggy was a jewel. I spent several summer weeks w her and my cousins. Perhaps it was something she sensed but she always would tell me “You are beautiful ” Those words are forever etched in my heart as is she and my cousins. I love you Aunt Peggy and am thankful for the time that we had.
