"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 peace at the 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 savored much
good friends, good times,
a loved ones touch.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now; He set me free."
Please feel free to express your condolences on her tribute wall.
