Funeral Obituary

A limb has fallen from the family tree. I hear a voice that whispers,
“Grieve not for me”
Remember the best times,
the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived
while I was strong.
Continue my heritage,
I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely
the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all…
how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions,
no matter how small.
Go on with your life,
don’t stare at the wall

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes we’re together again.
