I'M FREE
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard his 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 the peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joys. 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 touc_h, Perhaps my time seemed all to brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts, and peace too thee God wanted me now, He set me free.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT
It is with warm hearted appreciation that we acknowledge the many thoughtful expressions of sympathy shown us during the passing of our loved one. Your kindness will always be remembered. May God bless each of you.

PSALMS23
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though! walk through the valley ofthe shadow ofdeath, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; Thy rodand thy staffthey comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house ofthe Lord forever.
