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


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 of heart

Go to the friends we know

and bury your sorrow in doing good deeds

- Miss me, but let me go.



We loved Aunt Edna and so grateful for the Smithies family, happy we did get to visit with her although not often we know what a wonderful woman, wife, mother etc she was and will be missed tremendously. Very nice poem ! Rest In Peace kind soul. Condolences to all the family.

My deepest condolences to you Uncle Bob, and, my cousins, love and, miss Aunt Edna. I am glad we were able to see each other fairly regularly. RIP Aunt Edna.

I am sending my deepest sympathies to the family on the loss of a wonderful woman. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her. The support that was always offered in times need, by both my Aunt and Uncle, will remain a reminder of how important family is. Those ties that bind are always at the forefront and shall never be forgotten. They remain strong both in life and after leaving this world. Family is timeless just as is love. Love will always remain as will the many memories that we shared through out the years. May she Rest In Peace.
