Shirley and Dean Skaugstad and Annie and her husband, Henry Nachtscheim, would like to thank everyone for all the love and support shown us at the lost of our daughter and sister, Beth.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free —
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I couldn’t stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remember joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss —
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much —
Good friends, good times,
A loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me–
God wanted me now.
He set me free.
