  1. 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
    To laugh, to love, to work or play
    Tasks left undone must stay that way
    I’ve found that peace at the close of the 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, and a loved ones touch

    Perhaps my time seemed so 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

  3. Good-Bye

    Heaven has called upon you today,
    leaving so many words left to say.
    But now it’s to late,for your time has come, words unspoken; I’m sure everybody has some. Regrets and wishes are probably there to,but lasting forever are memories of you.Now it’s time for me to say Good-Bye,
    until we meet again in heaven to fly.

    I Love You Tim

  11. Dear Daphne,Taylor,Tiffany,

    We were very heartbroke to hear of Tim’s passing. But then we got to thinking we should be rejocing because that’s what God said in his word. Tim run his race and God has called him home. One day we will have our turn to rest from all the troubles and trials of this old world but Tim just got to go before us. We still remeber him singing Without a doubt I’m saved. Tim and your whole family are such a blessing to us. We are sorry that we could’nt make it to the funeral home, we had to go to revival tonight. We want you to know that we love you all and if we can do anything for you we are just a call away. We will remember your family in our prayers.
