Special Remarks: Family and Friends-2 min or less
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.
The family of Michelle Graham acknowledges with sincere appreciation every thought and act of kindness expressed to them during this hour of bereavement. God bless you for all your thoughtfulness and concern.
