January 26, 1959 - February 15, 2016
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow 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.
