Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I'll miss you,
until we meet again.

We thought of you with Love today
   but that was nothing new. 
We thought about you yesterday,
   and days before that too. 
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.

Now all we have are memories, 
   and your picture in a frame. 
Your memory is our keepsake,
   with which we'll never part. 

God has you in his keeping, we have you in our heart.

After Glow

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 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 life is done. 

Please leave photos, stories, and memories for family and friends to enjoy.

If you would like to contact the family, please email Stephanie at
