To the living, I am gone; to the sorrowful, I will never return; to the angry, I was cheated. But to the happy, I am at peace. And to the faithful, I have never left. I cannot speak, but I can listen. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard. So as you stand upon a shore gazing at a beautiful sea…as you look upon a flower and admire it’s simplicity… REMEMBER ME. Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, and your memories of the time we loved, the time we cried, the time we fought, the time we laughed. For if you always think of me, I will never have gone.Print Obituary & Condolences
