"Miss me but let me go when I come to the end of the road and the sun has set for me.
I want no tears in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little but not too long.
Remember the love we all once shared. Miss me but let me go.
This is a journey we all must take and each must go alone,
for it is part of the master plan, a step on the road to home.
So when you are lonely and sick at heart, bury your sorrow in doing good deeds.
Miss me but let me go. "
A private family Celebration of Life for Evelyn will take place at a later date.
