(In memoriam Dr. Eric Gross AM)
Free from pain and sorrow.
On the horizon is a bright tomorrow.
Those who remain feel enormous grief.
Christ will ease the pain and provide relief.
Earthly life is only a temporal phase.
It is comprised of finite days.
Limited to only eighty summers, not much more;
Millions of pilgrims have traveled this road before.
Relationships and family are important here and now.
Love all strangers and family, God will show you how.
Those who have crossed over can still hear you.
They will always remain close to you.
In Christ all will be made new.
