    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 the peace….at close of day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah 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’ve 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.

    You were my best friend EVER! Until we Schlemiel, Schlemazel again one day … I will miss you so very much. I love you Shanna!

    sissy I’m having a very hard time with all this, still can’t believe this has happened,I want to wake up as if all were a bad dream, I’m not ready to say goodbye I know I have to somehow let go, It’s hard to imagine that I wont hear your laugh and see your silly expressions when you talk about kiko or see the vein pop out in your forehead when you laugh too hard I wont get to plan trips or watch you with the kids anymore and I won’t get to tell you to toughen up lol… I miss you so much and I really am trying to not be bitter, I love you now and always…..
