"To Those I love and Those Who Love Me" 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 t h=n,~'.ful fm our many beautiful years. I gave to you my love, you can only guess, How mr,oh you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown. But now, it's time I travel on alone. So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a time 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 bo 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, rll gre~,t you with a smile and say, "Welcome Home". from niece Joyce and Marvin Reedy, Scottsdale, AZ. Open Reg. Hours Sat. & Sun.
