I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when
life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways
of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun;
of happy memories that I
leave when life is done.
Dayna Chamberlain – Funeral Director
