A very special thank you to Houston Ambulance, the Houston firefighters, and the Smithers Hospital. And a thank you to Schrader Funeral Home.
Don’t remember me with sadness,
Don’t remember me with tears.
Remember all the laughter,
We’ve shared thorough out 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.
