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 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 travelled on alone. 
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must; 
Then let your grief be comforted by trust, 
It's only for awhile 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 me or touch me, I'll be near. 
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear 
All of 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".
Funeral Service Monday, January 26 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chapel of Howard & 
McBride Westlawn followed by interment at Westlawn Memorial Gardens. In 
lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
