Be not sorrowful when I die. I have fought a hard, bitter battle. The prize of rest is mine, earned through pain and strife. Be not sad, for the prize of peace is finally mine. Lynn, the above words have helped carry me through the rough times since my mom passed away. I hope you find comfort in them .
