Into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long,
Upon my soul’s sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest,
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath,
Remember not the strife,
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.”
Leslie, a dear friend, lost Ron on Saturday. They were mountain hiking, a favorite pastime, when he was felled by a heart attack. Leslie and I have been friends ever since I came to southwest Virginia and my heart grieves for her. Please, remember Leslie and Ron’s family in your prayers as they go about these next days, the Friday funeral and life yet to be lived.
