"Nothing can make up for the absence of someone whom we love... ." Yet our hearts will be filled with lovely memories and remembered joys of the times we shared with you dear dear friend.
Steve found this in your desk. It sounds like you; we're sure you wanted us to find it!
To those I have loved and to those who loved me,
When I am gone release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love and you can only guess,
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I travel on alone.
So grieve awhile for me 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.
I won't be far away, for life goes on,
So if you need me, call, and I will come.
Though you can't see nor touch me, I'll be near,
And if you listen within your heart you'll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and welcome you home.
So many will miss you Marce dear ...
Son Steve and Daughter-in-law, Carol ...
And our little band of sisters just won't ever be quite the same without you.
May you rest in peace dear Marce.
