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 that we once shared
Miss Me - But Let Me Go.

Service & Interment: Friday, February 19, 2021 at 11am at Cellar Creek Baptist Church, Blackstone, VA

Viewing; Thursday, February 18, 2021, from 2pm-7pm at Hawkes Funeral Home, Blackstone, VA
