A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.”
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. -unknown
