The family wishes to express their thanks to the past and present staff at Three Oaks and to Ministry Home Hospice for their loving care. Safely Home I am home in heaven, dear ones; Oh so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty In this everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, Safely home in heaven at last. There is work still waiting for you. So you must not idly stand; Do it now, while life remaineth You shall rest in God's own land. When that work is all completed He will gently call you home; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh the joy to see you come!
