In Memory Of

Ruby Elizabeth Jacobson

To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
You mustnít tie me with tears.
Be thankful for our many beautiful 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 itís time I traveled on alone.
 So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must;
 then let your grief be comforted by trust.
 Itís only for a time that we must part;
 so bless the memories within your heart.
 I wonít be far away, for life goes on.
 So if you need me, call and I can come.
Though you canít see or touch me, Iíll be near.
 And if you listen with your heart youíll hear all
my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
Iíll greet you with a smile and say...Welcome Home!
