A life well lived is a precious gift
of hope and strength and grace
from someone who has made our world
a brighter, better place.
It’s filled with moments sweet and sad
with smiles and sometimes tears
with friendships formed
and good times shared
and laughter throughout the years.
Let us remember the smiling, the laughing
the talking, the sharing
the caring, the loving
the good times - forever
