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, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, I've finally found peace at the end of my pathway.
If my sudden parting has left a void, I ask you to fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life endured so very much, the good, the bad, 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 remembrance of Brenda's life will be held on Sunday, January 7, 2018, from 2-4 pm at Stephen C. Gregory & Son, 470 Meadowland Drive, Suite 7, So. Burlington.
