He is Survived By


Cathy Church of Floral City, Fl

 August 2, 1932 - January 15, 2021


When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom filled room.

Why cry for a soul set free.

Miss me a little, but not for long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared,

Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey that we all must take,

and each must go alone.

It's all a part of the Master's plan, a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know. And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss Me - But let me go!

  When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready, In heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I'd always Thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, So much yet to do, It seemed almost impossible, That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays, The good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, I'd say good-bye and kiss you And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized, That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me.. From His great golden throne.

  I'm Free
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.
