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 that place 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 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.

  1. You were the worlds greatest Husband, Father, Grandpa, Uncle, and Brother. You were loved by all and we were so blessed to have you in our lives. You were so selfless, a hard worker, and a great provider. I’m so blessed to see you one last time and give you 3 kisses on your forehead, and with each kiss and I Love You. I was able to tell you Thank you for the memories, your compassion, and teaching me how to be responsible, and saying to you your my Hero, my Hero. I love you with all my heart and soul, and I am truly going to miss you.

  2. Dad I miss you so much, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. You left us so sudden and it seems so unfair to you because you never really got a chance to just enjoy life and not to have to worry about anything. Thank You for giving me the best birthday present ever. I love you and miss you very much.

  3. Dad – its me again, your FAVORITE. I keep reading the poem and it makes me feel so much better and yes, I need to let you go. It’s been really hard, I can’t get your image out of my head (you face down with labored breathing). I keep going in your room hoping or thinking I will see you or get some kind’ve sign to let me know your at peace. I hope you approved of my memories I said at your service. I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to take care of mom for the long term like I knew you wanted me to, but it was completely out of my hands. Maybe thats why I can’t let go yet. I love you very much dad and me and my family misses you dearly.

  4. Hi dad, Mom has really slowed down since your passing but of course that’s expected. I know she misses you dearly and so does my family and I. I had to watch your video again and read your poem to lift me up again. Love you dad!

  5. Hi dad,
    It’s your favorite. I know you are watching from above with the love of your life now by your side. Today would’ve been your 85th birthday and I just want you to know, that I miss you dearly.
    Happy Birthday Dad!

  6. Missing you On Your Birthday – You were very kind and thoughtful with a warm and loving heart. And when other people needed help, you always played your part. You’re thought of every single day whatever time of year. But somehow more than ever now your special day is here. No present can be given and that’s really very hard. But there’s a world of love inside this special message. Each memory is shining bright and treasured dearly, too. But memories can’t take the place of a father so dear! Happy Birthday Dad!
