  1. Dear Warren As now you are free from your earthly ties You are free to soar among the stars I am happy for you that your suffering is over But I grieve for you\’re lost I will miss you, what more can I say I knew you as a friend for over 18 years You mean so much to me I\’m sorry I was not a better son in-law But I did what I thought was best when I helped Put in the home You told me many times while you were there That all you ever wanted was to travel Well now my friend you can Enjoy the journey you earned it As I sit here writing this letter to you My heart is heavy But my hurt will pass In knowing your suffering is over You know I will never know What is was like for you trapped within your mind But as I sit here on the beach The wave pounding Wind blowing I am as along as I can be With thoughts of only you As tears fill my eyes I know that there not for you They are for me For I lost a dear friend An a great father in-law So I cry at the lost of are friendship When I should be happy That your mind is free at last Trapped no more So for give me please As tears of remembrance Fill my heart Today I weep Tomorrow I will smile Love Ron
