Always pleasant and welcoming, always a smile, always a well-placed helpful word when most needed.  Though departed and off to your reward, you leave behind a priceless legacy in people and in memory.

"If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,
Nor when I'm gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known.
Weep if you must,
Parting is hell,
But life goes on,
So sing as well.

Joyce Grenfell
