When you come to the end of the road and the sun has set on me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little-but not too long, and not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me-but let me go.
For this is a journey that we "all must take, and each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan, a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know. And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me-but let me go.
Funeral service will be 11am Monday, November 29, 2021 at True Love Center, 2630 S. Broad St., Trenton, NJ 08610. Calling hours will be 9am until the time of service. Interment will be at Ewing Cemetery, Ewing, NJ. Arrangements are by Hughes Funeral Home.
