"I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one. I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when the day is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the way.
Of happy times and laughing times, and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those that grieve to dry before the sun.
Of happy memories that I leave behind when the day is done.
Be kind to one another and God Bless."
