"In Loving Memory..."

After Glow
"I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow
of smiles when the day 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 hearts, of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done."

~Helen Lowrie Marshall
(From her book of poetry, Close to the Heart)

Much too young.

My blessings are with her on her journey, and with you and those who are missing her.

Happy Easter Margaret. I'm sorry for your loss - she was very similar in age to myself. It makes one reflect on life choices and live for today because that's all we've got. My heart goes out to those who knew and loved her.
