I am sorry to read of your mother's passing. It has been a while since I talked to her. She was always upbeat and knew the news in Belvidere. May your memories comfort you now and always.

I only met Verna this summer and she was the sweetest lady. My condolences to Sharon and Jerry. After going to school with both of you, Sharon wish I would of known your Mom back then.

I'm Free - Unknown 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 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 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.
