Be happy that we had so many beautiful years. I gave 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 its time I traveled on alone. So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. Its only for a while that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. I wont be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you cant see or touch me, Ill be near. And if you listen with your heart, Youll hear all my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, Ill greet you with a smile and say welcome home. Author Unknown Visitation is Tuesday, October18, from 6-8PM at Goggans Funeral Home.
