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.

A friendly smile, a casual touch,
These are the things that mean so much.
To know you are with us in our time of sorrow,
Sharing our prayers, today and tomorrow.
God gives us comfort in the form of good friends,
May His peace be with you, His love never ends
