In Loving Memory of James A. Bartley

In Loving Memory of

James A. Bartley

2/24/1942 - 6/11/2021


I Am Always With You

When I am gone, release me,

let me go.

I have so many things to see

and do,

You mustn’t tie yourself to me,

with too many tears,

But be thankful we had so

many good years.

I gave you my love, and you

can only guess

How much you have given me

in happiness.

I thank you for the love that

you have shown,

But now it is time I traveled

on alone.

So grieve for me a while, If

grieve you must

Then let your grief be comforted

by trust

That is only for awhile that

we must part,

So treasure the memories

within your heart.

I won’t be far away for life

goes on.

And if you need me, call and I

will come.

Though you can’t see or touch me,

I will be near

And if you listen with your

heart, you’ll hear

All my love around you so

soft and clear

And then, when you come this

way alone,

I’ll greet you with a smile

and a “Welcome Home”.
