John “Jock” Black

Apr 8, 1936 – Oct 22, 2017
Passed away at Mills Memorial  Hospital after a courageous battle  with cancer.

Private Celebration of life was held at the Mumford November 4th,  2017.

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 tears. 

Be happy that we had so many years. 

I gave to you my love, you can only guess 

how much you gave to me in happiness. 

I thank you for the love you each have shown, 

but now it’s time I travelled on alone. 

So grieve a while for me if grieve you must, 

then let your grief be comforted  by trust. 

It’s only for a while that we must part, 

so bless the memories within your heart. 

I won’t  be far away, for life goes on; 

So if you need me call and I will come. 

Though you can’t see me or touch me, 

I’ll be near, and if you listen with your heart, 

you’ll hear all of my love around you, soft and clear, 

and then, when you must come this way alone, 

I’ll greet you with a smile and say,

“Welcome Home”
