Its ok to cry just a little as I did pass away. Always remember all of our good times and keep me in your hearts. My love and memories for all of you will be with me for eternity. Today I am happy, I am no longer sick or in pain. Thank you for the memories. You truly made my life complete. In you’re hearts I hope I remain, that special memory that puts a smile upon your face. Always remember you will see me in your dreams”.
