Im Free
Dont grieve for me,for now Im free,Im following the path God made for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,to laugh,to love,to work or play
Tasks left undone must stay that way,I found peace at the close of day.
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 lifes been full,Ive savored much,good friends,good times,
A loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Dont lengthen it now with undue grief,
Lift up your hearts ,and share with me,
God wanted me now,
He set me free.

My prayers of comfort to the Monko family. Love you Denise RIP
Dee Suppes and family
