David and Judy Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. 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 or play Task 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 I too will miss Be not burdened with the time of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow My life’s been full, I have savored much Good friends, good times, and loved one’s touch Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don’t lengthen it with undue grief Lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now, He set me free.”
