There are condolences waiting approval on TRUDY's Tribute wall


Trudy Mae Capehart

On April 5, 2012 at 8:41 a.m. God spoke and summoned an angel home to rest in the cradle of his arms.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God 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 or 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 joy. A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss, Oh 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 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 now, He set me free.
