    Love and prayers to Beth and the entire family. found this today and Beth this speaks just to you from him. My heart is with you!

    Don’t Grieve For Me

    Don’t grieve for me, from pain I’m free
    I’m following the path God has laid, you see.
    I took his hand when I heard his call
    I turned around 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 the peace on a sunny day.
    If my parting has left a void
    Then fill it with remembered joys.
    A family shared, a laugh, a kiss
    Oh 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’ve savored much,
    Good family, good times, a loved one’s touch.
    Perhaps my time seem all too brief
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee.
    God wanted me now; From pain I’m free.

    Darrell & Nancy Rahn
