In Memory

It seems too soon for you to leave, and yet you will always be with us. We remember your smile and the way you brightened our days. We remember your humor and the way you lifted our moods. We remember your competitive spirit and the way you emotionally charged us. We remember your leadership and the way you inspired us. We remember your courage and the way you calmed us. We remember your faith and the way you sustained us. In that place in our hearts where we keep happiness and joy, you are there.

We need to have people who mean something to us.

People to whom we can turn. Knowing that being with them is coming home.

Anon.

You are one of those people, and knowing you is our privilege.
