I would like to share with you a poem that would best describe my friend who had passed on just recently. We can sit and ask the question over and over....why so young and why did he go before his time?  He was the type of man that would not want anyone to spend too much time grieving for him because every minute spent would take away from your own precious time here on earth so I just want to share this with you and if I can bring some comfort to anyone who is dealing with sorrow then take it for what it is worth. My intent is to show you that this man who was an integral part of my life wouldn't want me or his friends to shed any more tears.

"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free! I follow the plan God laid for me. I saw His face, I heard His call, I took His hand and left it all... I could not stay another day, To love, to laugh, to work or play; Tasks left undone must stay that way. And if my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss... Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss. My life's been full, I've savoured much: Good times, good friends, a loved-one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief— Don't shorten yours with undue grief. Be not burdened with tears of sorrow, Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow."
