Now I could go to rest in peace, by purpose is accomplished.
I thank you Lord for the privilege of leading all those souls to you.
May Christ be fully formed in them, so there light will truly shine.
So the world will continue to know that you alone are The Light.

Now children, wipe your teary eyes.
I am going to a much better place
Make sure you look out for your mother and continue to run the race.
Stay united as a family and remember I love you all dearly.

Oh Dad! We canít help but cry even though we are overgrown
We will miss your words of wisdom and your special homemade pie.
Yes we will be united and we will take care of mum.
We will definitely keep the faith and share the love of God.

Eileen please come closer so I can hug you,
Darling, do not look so distraught.
You know it is my time to go.
The Lord will keep you, you will never be alone.

Eileen you are such a faithful wife,
Always steadfast and always full of life.
Darling I will miss you dearly but you have to be strong like you always have.
Apart from the Lord you have been the centre of my life.

Oh Jake, I am sorry to see you go,
It breaks my heart in pieces, but I trust that His peace will keep me through this crisis.
I will miss your company dearly, especially your silly jokes.
You are an exemplary husband, and my love for you will never die.
See you on the other side.

I liked reading this - it tugged at my emotions and I felt as if I were there.

Triumphant - not teary. The way all goodbyes should be. Thanks for sharing.
