“When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not too long
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me…but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone,
It’s all a part of the Masters Plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely, and sick at heart,
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me…but let me go.”
Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Gary McDowell, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
