"Please don't say that I gave up; just say that I gave in. Don't say I lost the battle, for it was God's war to loose or win. Please don't say how good I was, but that I did my best. Just say I tried to do what's right, to give the most I could, not less. Please don't give me wings or halos, that is for God to do. I want no more than I deserve. No extras, just my due. Please don't give me flowers, or talk in harsh tones. Don't be concerned about me now. I am well with God, I have made it home."
