God blessed me with so many musical talents. I never really understood why, but now I know that he was preparing me for my early exit and my eternal life in Heaven. To all my loved ones that I am leaving behind, don’t worry about me because my Heavenly Father has set me free. Please be forever grateful and thankful for the happiness we’ve shared. If my parting has left a void, then replace it with remembered joy. My life’s been full; I’ve savored much. This place was never meant to be a permanent home for any of us. Through all the pain and heartaches, give
praises and honor to my Heavenly Father for setting me free. As you celebrate the end of my life’s journey, I pray that each of you will find comfort in knowing that a loving and compassionate God knows what is best for each of us.
