July 25, 1927 ~ August 3, 2011
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smile; I've only gone to rest a little while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now, but as I used to be. I will remember you all and look on with a smile. Understand, in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while. As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
