I'M FREE

Shared by Sandra Turner on May 19, 2010

                                           I'M FREE

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 COULD NOT STAY ANOTHER DAY

TO LAUGH, TO LOVE, TO WORK, OR PLAY

TASKS LEFT UNDONE MUST STAY THAT WAY;

I FOUND THAT PLACE AT THE CLOSE OF DAY.

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 WILL MISS.

BE NOT BURDENED WITH TIMES OF SORROW

I WISH YOU THE SUNSHINE OF TOMORROW.

MY LIFE'S BEEN FULL, I SAVORED MUCH;

GOOD FRIEND'S, GOOD TIMES, A LOVED ONE'S 

TOUCH.

PERHAPS MY TIME SEEMS ALL TO BRIEF;

DON'T LENGHTEN IT NOW WITH UNDO

GRIEF.

LIFT UP YOUR HEART AND SHARE WITH ME,

GOD WANTED ME NOW, HE SET ME FREE. 

Forever in My Heart

I just learned last night that my Aunt Terri passed away in the years that I lost contact with her. It is very heart breaking to learn of someone you loved so much passing away. It is even harder when you think of all the things you will never get to say. I know I am not biological or even related by marriage, but she always was and always will be Aunt Terri. I never called her otherwise. She was such an amazing person and it was my honor to have known her. I'd like to share with you my two favorite memories of her.

Aunt Terri and my mother were very good friends when I was a kid(back in the 80's) and Aunt Terri was in her late teens/early twenties I guess. I remember when she used to get all 'dolled' up to go out and I would watch her while we listened to "I Love Rock N Roll" on record. Yes, RECORD. She was the coolest Aunt to me because she was young and fun and I admired her so much. She was so beautiful.

My other story is when she would come to our house, again, I was little, and hang out with my Mom and her brother Rickey and she would spend the night and sleep in my room on my sisters bed and my sister would sleep with me. She would come to bed and I would still be awake and I would have my radio on. I would be quiet for a few minutes so Aunt Terri would think I was sleeping. Once I was 'sure' she was sleeping, I would start singing with whatever song was on the radio. Each time, she would always say-"Christy, I'm not asleep, you know."

Aunt Terri-I always loved you. You were so great to me, even when I was a pain in the butt kid. The last time we saw each other was some time in 1999 and my biggest regret in life now, will be that I moved to Virginia and lost contact with you. You may not be here in person for me to visit you and hug you and laugh with, btu you will always be in my heart and a part of the memories I cherish so greatly. I love you and miss you and will never forget you.

Your niece in heart

When you left

Shared by Sandra Turner on January 12, 2010

Wen you left

I get mad when I think about it

I get sad when I try to write or talk about it

When you left I tried to be brave

I knew what was wrong and you would leave me all alone

I couldn't save you

I feel like it is all on me, but sometimes I know there wasn't anything anyone could do

I still will always love you

Forever in my heart and soul, Your sister Sandy

Terri I love and miss you so much, I wish you were here everyday of my life, there isn't a moment in the day that I don't think about you.
