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 his call, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the end 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 too I 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' 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.

I knew the time was near but it still was a shock when you left this earth. May you have found the peace your sought all these years. I keep our good memories and closed the door to the ones that were trying and challenging. Our children will be OK. Rest in peace, dear Steve. Your ex-wife, Loretta

I wasn't prepared for the call that you were in the hospital. It was even more devastating to receive the call on the morning of your passing. I know that you were in pain and suffering. It still hurts that you are gone. Thank you for the journal we found. It is filled with so many memories, emotions, pain, and love. I will cherish the journal, and the good memories that we shared. I never stopped loving you, never stopped praying for you, and never gave up on you. I'll love you always. Fly high dad. I love you!
