I'm Free

A beautiful, elegant, kind & wonderful aunt, mother, grandmother & wife passed away suddenly on February 22, 2011. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her. Rest in Peace Tita Rosie.

Her daughters read the following poem at her funeral:

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 by back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love,
to work or play.
Tasks were left undone must stay that way.
I found peace at the close of the 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 savoured much:
good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to 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.
