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 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 we once shared,

Miss me – but let me go.

For this is the journey we all must take,

And each must go alone.

It’s all a part of the Master’s plan,

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart

Go to the friends we know,

And busy your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss me – but let me go.

  2. To the Family of Betty,
    My husband and I first met Betty and Jack at a First Canadian Collectors Club Meeting in the early 80’s. Betty was one of the ladies that talked me into joining the Calgary Doll Club. Over the years I have enjoyed her company very much and I am going to miss her terribly.
    I send my condolences to your family for your loss.

  4. My condolences on the loss of your mother. I only knew her as a child when she baby sat all of us at their house in the Manchester area in Calgary. I didn’t even know she was a half sister until I was a teenager, when someone clued me in.
    Anyway, my sympathy to you. If you have any interest in talking and perhaps connecting some dots I would be happy to do so.
    Regards,
    John Barrett
