    Dearest Susan & Matt,
    You’ve stood fast thru a terrible, heart-wrenching time. Our thoughts are with you in your grief. We’re thankful you are not alone. We know you are strong and wise and know that his suffering is over. You must rejoice in that! We grieve for OUR loss, but must rejoice in HIS peace.

    “When I am gone, just release me, let me go-
    So I can move into my afterglow.

    You mustn’t tie me down with your tears,
    Let’s be happy that we had so many years.

    I gave you my love, you can only guess
    How much you gave me in happiness.

    I thank you for the love you each have shown,
    But now it’s time I traveled on alone.

    So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
    Then let your grief be comforted with trust.

    It’s only for a while that we must part,
    So bless the memories within your heart.

    And then, when you must come this way alone,
    I’ll greet you with a smile and say “Welcome Home”
