Gone Fishing

This is the verse we chose for the cards at my dad's funeral. We thought we ordered too many cards, but they were ALL gone within the first 5 minutes of the visitation. I read the verse during my eulogy and also included it in the many many many thank you cards we've sent...I'm thinking a lot about my dad this week so I thought I'd post it here:

Gone Fishing

Don’t grieve for me, I’ve gone fishing
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life’s been very full
Now I’m free to enjoy it all
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief
But remember me with a twinkle in my eye
I’m not far away
I’ve gone fishing.

Love you, Dad....forever and ever.
