Edward Glenn

May 25, 1935 - August 22, 2022

I know you’ll miss me,
But now I’m free.
There’s no more pain or misery.
My body was tired,
I put up a good fight,
But God took the pain away
And now I’m alright.
Please don’t cry or be too sad
My suffering is gone, for me I’m glad.
I didn’t want to leave you but I needed
To be free, I tried to stay but this
old pain got the best of me.
So remember this during sunshine, or
rain, that I am free and there’s
No more pain.
