Chavez -- In Loving Memory of JOSE E. CHAVEZ SR. July 7, 1938 - October 20, 1999To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me When I am gone, release me, let me go, I have so many things to see and do. You must not tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many beautiful years. I gave you my love, you can only guess, how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love that each of you have shown, but now it's time I traveled on alone. Grieve for a while, for if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for awhile that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for you see life goes on, so if you need me just call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near, and if you listen to your heart, you will hear all my love around you so soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say,"Welcome Home."Love & Kisses, Dad. Life hasn't been the same since you left us. Love Your Family
