In loving memory of James Allen “Lace Up” Loomis III, loving son, brother, grandson and friend: With a heart of gold, a friend to many, a young life taken way too soon. A free spirit who was loved and will be missed by all. Until we meet again God’s sweet angel. Don’t grieve for me now, I am free, I am following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh to love to work or to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that peace of close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I have savored much; good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now. He set me free.
