In Loving Memory of Eliseo Chavez Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-grandfather June 11, 1934 - November 23, 2001WHEN I AM GONEwhen I am gone release me Let me go, I have so many things to see and do You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears Be happy that we had so many beautiful yearsI gave to you my love you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness I thank you for the love you each have shown But now it's time I travel aloneSo grieve awhile for me, If grieve you must Then let your grief be comforted by my trust It's only for awhile that we must part So bless the memories within your heartI won't be far away, for life goes on so if you need me, call and I will come Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near And if you listen within your heart you'll hear All my love around you soft and clearAnd then when you must come this way alone I'll greet you with a smile and say "Welcome Home".
