When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom filled room.

Why cry for a soul that’s free?

When you are lonely and sick of heart

Go to the friends we know

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss me – but let me go.

Cremation has taken place, and per Cindie’s wishes, no services are planned.
