When I am Gone

"When I am gone, release me. Let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many beautiful years.
I gave to you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must.
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that 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 will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near.
And 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'll greet you with a smile and say welcome home..."

Dear Michelle,

Having experienced the loss of my Dad, I know your pain and sadness. I pray for peace, endurance and strength for you through this emotional and exhausting time. You are truly a wonderful person, partly because of the relationship you have shared with your mom. I have your family in my thoughts and prayers every day. Hang in there.

Your friend,

Dear Michelle,

I am so sorry for your lose. I know you will miss your mom tremendously. Just know that the love between the two of you extends beyond the grave, and we know "love never fails". With God, all things are possible, and you have the blessed hope of seeing her again one day. God bless you, Darrell, & the rest of your family.

With sincere sympathy,
