Don’t remember me with sadness,

Don’t remember me with tears,

Remember all the laughter

We’ve shared throughout the years.

Now I am contented,

That my life it was worthwhile,

Knowing that I passed along the way,

I made somebody smile.

When you are walking down the street,

And you’ve got me on your mind,

I’m walking in your footsteps,

Only half a step behind.

So please don’t be unhappy,

Just because I’m out of sight,

Remember that I’m with you,

Each morning, noon and night.




“May God touch you

with His healing hand

and give you the peace and comfort

you need to get through.”
