MISS ME, BUT LET ME GO
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 set free?
Miss me a little...but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that was once shared,
miss me...but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take
and each must go alone.
It's all part of the Master's plan,
a step on the road to home.
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.

I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play, tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that 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 things,I too,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 too brief; don't lengthen it now with undue grief, lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now, He's set me free.
No matter how brief it may seem Each Life is purposed by God! May we use our days to accomplish that purpose. When He welcomes us Home, May He say, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."

Thanks for stopping by today..
David P. Helman
Taking time this evening to fondly remember Dave and many good times and memories shared as classmates at North High School (Class of '66). So long ago and despite different paths traveled, it's easy to see his face and hear his laughter. Friends remember the best of each other. Rest well, Dave. My sincerest condolences to your family and other friends.
Leaving behind a lifetime of memories, we will miss you David. As a dear childhood friend (brother) of Earl's, you were the best 'Best Man' at our wedding nearly 40 years ago. It is now your turn to join the others who were also part of our wedding party - friend Bruce Snyder and brother John Helman, who are waiting for you in Heaven. We kept in touch and have seen much of you in recent years as you faced so many health challenges, and Earl enjoyed his weekly Sunday visits with you. Rest in Peace now, Dave, as you leave this life behind. Know that your friends will fondly remember you with a lifetime of memories to bring smiles to our faces. You were always a good friend and we will miss you.
THE EMPTY CHAIR
We gather here, a class once more To reminiscence, like years before Upon the days and joys we knew Before our school-aged time was through Yet, as we meet, with memories near We think of those, always held dear - Our friends and classmates, passed away To be with God, and enjoy their day.
They sit at desks, resting on clouds Surrounded by angelic crowds Where they shall be forevermore The friends and schoolmates we adore They’ll be with us in every prayer Until the day, we join them there Within the walls of Heaven’s class Where friendships formed shall always last.
Until that hour, when we join again An empty chair, we will maintain In honor of the life-long bond We forged with those, now passed beyond The friends with whom we learned life’s truth Whose bonds lasted far from our youth And shall remain forever near When we gather, from year to year.
