I like to think of you as happy with all of your children and grandchildren nearby.
You must know that you indeed have lived a successful life - though brief, you made every day meaningful!
You taught me how to love unconditionally and focus on the good in people.
Your memory is a great comfort to me.
I celebrate your life more and more every day!
Your loving daughter,
"To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
