When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

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 his call l turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, to play .
Tasks left undone must stay that way I've found that peace at the close of the day
If my parting has left avoid then. fill it with remembered joy
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 life's been full, I've savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one's touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.
A Memorial service will be held 12pm, Thursday, May 5, 2022 at Union Baptist Church, 301 Pennington Ave., Trenton, NJ 08618. Interment will be private. Arrangements are by Hughes Funeral Home.
