Some family members allergic to pork and all pork products, oranges, peanuts, and shellfish. Items containing these ingredients should not be brought into gatherings.
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 while, but no too long, and not with your head held low.
Remember the love we once shared. Miss me but let me go.
This is a journey we all must take, and each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan. A step in the road to home.
