When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears;
And hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile.
And for my sake and in His name,
Live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer,
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
************
** ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS **
We wish to express our sincerest appreciation for the sympathy
and love expressed to each of us in our loss. Your very comforting
expressions of sympathy and the many other kind gestures will always
be remembered with deepest gratitude. May Gods richest blessings be
with you and yours always, in our prayer.
The Family
