“I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles and hugs when life is done.
I’d like to leave a memory 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.”
