Weep not for me though I have gone into that gentle night

Grieve if you will, but not for long. Upon my soul’s sweet fight, I am at peace. My soul is at rest. There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed for all those many years. And there is no pain, I suffer not, the fear is now all gone, put now these things out of your thoughts. In your memory I loved. Remember no my fight for breath; remember not the strife, please do not dwell upon my death but celebrate my life.

A native and lifetime resident of Mobile, born May 21, 1960 to the union of the late Charles and Ann Marie Sargent.
