    *My Dad died suddenly Thurday and my sis and I wrote this to be printed on his funeral cards...

    Do Not Grieve That I Have Gone

    Do not grieve that I have gone
    Beyond the reaches of your smiles.
    Take comfort in the dreams I've shared,
    We're only parted for awhile.

    Remember what I tried to teach,
    Ideals that made this country strong.
    Keep fighting hard for liberty,
    March on to Freedom's battlesong.

    My life's been full, I savored much;
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch -
    Ah, yes...these things I too will miss.

    But don't let sorrow steal your joy,
    Live every day that we're apart.
    Remember that I'm never gone,
    I'll always be there in your heart.

    I believe your Dad would be very proud of who you are. I am indeed sorry for your loss. I believe you shall see him again.

    That is beautiful, Beki. Was he a military man perchance? Sorry for your loss, your words do him proud.

    thank you

    tHANKS EVERYONE FOR READING AND COMMENTING. YES, TERRENCE - HE WAS A WORLD WAR II VETERAN OF THE PACIFIC CAMPAIGN - WE BURIED HIM APPROPRIATELY ON PEARL HARBOR DAY. hE WAS FANATICAL IN HIS PASSIONATE PATRIOTISM AND I MUST CONFESS IN HIS LATER YEARS HE BECAME QUITE ANNOYING BUT YOU CANNOT DENY HE HAD PASSION. I THINK TH EPOEM SUITE DHIM VERY WELL AND MY FAMILY APPRECIATED THE MILITARY HONORS SHOWN HIM AT THE FUNERAL.
