Weep Not For Me - Unknown Author
Weep not for me though I have gone into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul’s sweet fight
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest, there is no need for tears
For with your love I was so blessed for all those many years
There is no pain, I suffer not. The fear is now all gone
Put now these things out of your thoughts, in your memory I live on
Remember not my fight for breath. Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death, but CELEBRATE my life.

Visitation will be 10:00-11:00 am, Tuesday, at Tucker, Yocum, & Wilson Funeral Home, with the service beginning at 11:00 am. Rev.
