Harvey was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He was truly a “jack-of-all-trades. In his retirement years he loved woodworking and attending bluegrass and gospel sings. Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free; I’m following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard Him call; I turned away 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 my place 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; ah yes, these too, I shall 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 to brief; don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, GOD WANTED ME NOW, HE SET ME FREE. I’ll be waiting for you with open arms when your time has come. I’m in your hearts now, forever.
