Don’t remember me with sadness,
Don’t remember me with tears,
Remember all the laughter,
We’ve shared throughout the years.
Now I am content 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.
My condolence to all of Rita's family. I really enjoyed talking to her whenever we were in the same surroundings. I think that the last time that it happened was after Johnny's funeral on the farm.
Our condolences to all the family. Lots of good memories left behind.
Bob & Margaret Thiessen
