(Spilker Funeral Home, Cape May) info and condolences: spilkerfuneralhome.com I'm Free Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I am following the path God laid for me. I took God's hand when I heard the call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, 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 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, God set me free.
