In Loving Memory

Leonarda Arocho
February 5, 1939 – November 5, 2021
Your life was a blessing, your memory is a treasure. You’ve loved beyond words and missed without measure.

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God has chosen for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call:
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I’ve now found peace at the end of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow:
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my life seemed all too brief:
Don’t lengthen your pain with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and peace to thee;
God wanted me now, He set me free.
