For My Friend Robert Bumpus – July 26, 1956 – January 21, 2014


Rejoice, my friend, the day is finally through.

On now to needed bliss and joy anew.

Behind you is a world you filled with love.

Each soul you touched give thanks to God above.

Rewarded by your presence, we are blessed.

To feel the peace and love that you possessed.

Be happy, for the race is finally run,

United now with Christ, the battle’s won.

More vibrant are the lives that knows your heart;

Please rest assured you moved us from the start.

Uphold your words, as gentle as a dove:

“Stay full of love”, you said, “Stay full of love.”
