She’ll be free

Free of the shackles that bind us to this world

Free from the pain and sorrow

Free from the worries of today

Free from the longing of tomorrow

Free from the ever present fear of leaving

Free from the clever tricks of the mind

Free from all the toil and labor

Free without the fear of being left behind

She’ll be free ... we love you mom

—Your loving children
