A beautiful life that came to an end. She dies as she lived, everyone’s friend. In our hearts a memory will always be kept, as one we loved, and will never forget!


When I cease to be

Turn me into ashes

And scatter me o’er the sea.


For then I’d not be idle.

I’d be part of each daily tide.

I’d find my voice in the ocean’s roar

I’d partake of summer’s joy

At each and every ocean’s side.

I’d revel in being part of the sea

And, for a change, have the moon and stars

Reflect on me!
