In loving memory of Kathy Burke of Simsbury and for all senators, staff and guests who are remembering this Memorial Day weekend:

I have come to the end of the road, the lord has taken me.

You need not weep for me anymore, why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not too long, and not with your head held low.

Remember the joy of the love we shared.

Miss me. But let me go.

Amen
