Robert L. Moore

December 10, 1953 — April 24, 2023

"I have a place in heaven

Please don’t sing sad songs for me,

Forget your grief and fears,

For I am in a perfect place

Away from pain and tears.

It’s far away from hunger

And hurt and want and pride,

I have a place in Heaven

With the Master at my side.

My life on earth was very good,

As earthly life can go,

But Paradise is so much more

Than anyone can know.

My heart is filled with happiness

And sweet rejoicing, too.

To walk with God is perfect peace,

A joy forever new."
