"PRINCETON — Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m 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 play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. 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 savored much; Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seems all to brief; Don’t lengthen your pain with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me, I’m with God now, I’ve been set free. "Bernard H. England, age 90, of Princeton, formerly of Corinne, W.Va., passed away Tuesday, March 29, 2011, at Princeton Community Hospital, after a short illness.
