Don’t cry for me, I will be okay, Heaven is my home now, and this is where I’ll stay.

Don’t cry for me, I’m where I belong, I want you to be happy, and try to stay strong.

Don’t cry for me, it was just my time, but I will see you someday, on the other side.

Don’t cry for me, I am not alone, the angels are with me, to welcome me home.

Don’t cry for me, for I have no fear, all my pain is gone, and Jesus took my tears.

Don’t cry for me, this is not the end, I’ll be waiting here for you, when we meet again.

The family would like to thank everyone for the flowers, cards, thoughts, support, and prayers during this hour of bereavement.

Special thanks to Pipkin Braswell Funeral Home and Cremation for their care and professional services rendered to the family.
