Rest in Peace.....

We lay his body down to sleep.
For God has claimed his soul to keep
From suffering, toil and heartaches strife.
He's gone from here to a better life.

He's run his journey and kept the pace,
And joined God's presence face to face.
His hands have worked so very long,
To raise his family  so big and strong..

His feet have walked so many miles
Not always ending with big smiles.
We've come this far to see him off,
To let his spirit sail aloft.

He dwells inside that Pearly Gate,
To calmly watch and quietly wait.
His spirit's free in joyful bliss,
He lovingly got his Good Night Kiss.....

Rest in Peace.
