Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free

I'm following the path GOD had 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 let undone must stay that way

I've now found peace at the end of the day

If my parting had left a void

Then fill it with remembered joys

Oh yes, these things, I too will miss

Be not burdened with times of sorrow

Look for the sunshine of tomorrow

My life's been full, I savored much

Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch

Perhaps my time seems all too brief

Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief

Lift up your heart and peace to thee

God wanted me now and set me free

The Farley family is being served by the Cravens-Shires Funeral Home, 3431 Coal Heritage Road, Bluefield, WV (Bluewell) and is accepting online condolences at

Her wishes were to be cremated with no services to be held.
