SORRY I HAD TO LEAVE YOU

Sorry I had to leave in a sudden kind of way
but I had a friend to say, He needed me today.
I didn't have time to call or even say Good-bye
because this friend of mine, was in a hurry
so, I did not even try.
I knew you would understand
cause that's the way you are.
Don't wait up, and please don't cry
besides, did you hear me say "Good-bye"?

I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU-TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS

The day has come to say goodbye, Hold your head up, try not to cry. I am not gone for good, You will see me again. I have gone home to my Father where my life just began. Don't ever think the Lord is being unfair, He tried to make everyone aware. When I was born into this world, I was not your own, my life with you was only a loan. I have graduated from earth with the highest degree. I majored in life and death, now I am free. Accept my last certificate with honor, and be proud of me. Always remember, this was meant to be. I love all of you, and I know you love me, I will always be with you spiritually. You have been there for me, now I must travel alone, I will be waiting to greet you, when it's your time to come home. "IZENA"


FAREWELL TO MY FAMILY

Mae, My Mother: God doesn't put any more on you than you can bear, so he is with you and I know that he cares.

Conswella, My Mama: Don't cry for me, please be strong, you'll be sad for just a little while, but not for very long.

Jessie Cooper, My Other Mom: I want you to make preparations every day, then you will be ready to come my way.

Joey, My Son: Wipe away all of your tears, because God has really blessed me and gave me a lot of years.

Dominic and Kerry, My Sons: I've grown very tired, and I really need my rest, you already know that God only wants the best.

Pastor, My Brother: May you forever know, that my love is always with you, wherever you may go.

Erwin and Kewan, My Special Boys: I know that this is hard for you, but PLEASE put God first in all that you do.

Alice, Annette, Gail, Mayola, Tangie & Vera My Sisters:Just look upon me with a smile, and thank God that I was with you for just a little while.

Cedonia, Eunice, Geneva, Rose, Rosie, Tina & Veola, My Other Sisters: Please don't sit there and cry for me, for I am resting in Peace, can't you see?

Leartrice, Lyndon, Oliver, Jr.,Toney and Walter, My Brothers: Brothers you will always be, because you meant the whole wide world to me.

To My Grandchildren, Great-Grandchildren, and Godchildren: Go on and cry if you must, just please remember one thing, "IN GOD WE TRUST".

To My In-Laws, Uncles, Aunts, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins & Friends: I've already run my race, now I am ready to see my Savior's face.

I have left you in His hand, although some of you just might not understand. I am now safe in Heaven's care. My love is with you , though you don't see me there. Just remember my struggles, tears and pain, and above all, how I called on Jesus name. So keep the faith, as you press on, and one day we'll meet, somewhere around God's thorne.
