Don’t spend too much time in mourning 

Tears are for the sad

I left to be with Jesus,

And this should make you glad. 

Don’t waste your hours in grieving

No need to feel distressed 

 I’m tired of life frustrations

 And need to get some rest

 Don’t worry yourself with Questions

 Or try to reason why

 Life here for me has ended

 It came my time to die

 No more tears for me now

 I am pain free and

 now reunited with my beloved Bill. 

All arrangements are made by Naugle Funeral & Cremation Service, Ltd. 135 W Pumping Station Road, Quakertown, PA 18951. (215-536-3343)
