  4. When I am gone, release me, let me go
    I have so many things to see and do
    You must not tie yourself to me with tears
    Be happy that I have had so many years

    I gave you my love, you can only guess
    How much you gave me in happiness
    I thank you for the love each have shown
    But now it is time I travelled on alone

    So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must
    Then let your grief be comforted by trust
    It is only for a while that we must part
    So bless the memories in your heart

    I will not be far away, for life goes on
    So if you need me, call and I will come
    Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near
    And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
    All of my love around you soft and clear Then, when you must come this way alone
    I will greet you with a smile and welcome you home.

    It is with great sadness that I have lost my only Aunt. We were very close, until I moved to the states. Then my Aunt moved to Calgary. When my cousin had her daughter I went there every yr. Aunty Hetty will be missed, but I know she is in a better place.
    God Bless. Also on behalf of my Mom and my Brother, they would like to express their condolence and feelings of lose of their beloved Sister and Aunty. Rest in peace

  6. I will remember my aunty Hetty for her wonderful KINDNESS, as a young boy, a highlight of Christmas and the summer holidays would be Aunty Hettys visits from Manchester. She never failed to bring TOYS for myself and my BIG sister Maureen. Mars bars were 6p in those days, Sidolis ice cream was (I suppose) about the same cost. We always had both treats. We only had one Aunty. She was very special to us as children. My thoughts and sadness are for you SUE Martin Zoe
