The Family To Those Whom I Love Do not mourn because God is ready to take me home, Be grateful that by my family I was known, For my days on earth are dwindling to a few, Be glad God gave me the chance to know you, Please wipe tears from your eyes, Because pain will be gone, and you have no reason to cry. I may not have been famous or well know, But, our memories, our laughs are yours to keep, It'll be just as if I fell asleep, Now, God I am ready to come home. James Randolph Miles
