To my husband, children and grandchildren; Be not sorrowful that I am gone and my earthly life is done. Be not sad I passed away. For in you, my children, I live each day. There is a little of me in all of you, in each new one I live anew. So you see, I’ll never be really gone, as long as there are children to carry on. I have had my share of love, sorrow and strife. I have lived a full and fruitful life. So do not mourn and do not weep. For I have earned this peaceful sleep.
