To Those I Love When I am gone, Just release me, let me go. So I can move into my afterglow. You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, Lets be happy, that we had so many years. I give you my love, you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness. Thank you for the love you have shown, but for now it's time I traveled on alone. So grieve for me awhile, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for awhile that we must part, So bless the memories within your heart. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile, and say, "Welcome Home" A day of open visitation at the Cook-Walden Davis Funeral Home will be on Friday, May 29, 2009 with a chapel service at 3:00 p.m. with Pastor Mel Stauber officiating.
