"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 Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay that day,
to laugh, to love, to work or play.
Task undone must stay that way.
I found peace at the close of the day.
If my parting left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with time of sorrow.
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one touched.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
but don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me.
God wanted me now, He set me free!"

God how we miss you! We miss your shy smile, your wry humor, your very presence in our lives! Rose is hanging in there and you would not be surprised by that but would be so proud of her. What a woman you found in her! I know there are many, many, days ... probably every one of them since you've left us ... that she wonders how she'll continue to the next. Somehow, she does. She is such and inspiration to us! We miss you and we will look after her. Stoney, you are a true American hero. We love you and will forever miss you!"
