Saying goodbye

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 my life is done.

These words were on a Memorial Card for Roy Leitz, dearly loved husband and anam cara of my wonderful friend Nancy.

I was very touched by them. It is how I would like to be remembered, when I breathe my last. Nancy please hang a copy on your fridge to read and reflect on as the days and weeks go by.
