Santillanes -- In Memory of Peter J Santillanes October 31,1974- November 11,1995 I'm FreeDont grieve for me for now I'm free, I'm following the path God has laid, You see. I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss O yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I've savored much. Good friends, good times, A loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee, God Wanted me-- He set me free. Love , Dominique, Rebecca
