“When I get where I'm going,

There'll be only happy tears.

I will shed the sins and struggles

I have carried all these years.

And I'll leave my heart wide open,

I will love and have no fear.

Yeah, when I get where I'm going,

Don't cry for me down here.”

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in her name.
