6th August 1940 - 27th September 2013
Then do not mourn because I've passed away.
Life holds so many griefs and disappointments,
And will you cry because I did not stay?
'Tis only for a spell we must be parted;
Not many years on earth to us are given
And when my Saviour tells me you are coming,
I'll go with Him and welcome you to heaven.
Grieve not because the eyes that looked upon you
Shall never see your face on earth again;
Rejoice, because they look upon the Saviour
Who gave His life to ransom sinful men.
Weep not because I walk no longer with you;
Remember, I am walking streets of gold.
Weep for yourselves that you awhile must tarry
Before the blessed Lord you may behold."
