We have a tenant that recently lost her daughter in a tragic accident. I was searching the internet for something to say in my card to her.
I can't imagine the pain she must be feeling, and I am at a loss for words
I can't imagine having to say goodbye to your firstborn...or third, or tenth!
The poem I found does not apply to her, because I never did meet her daughter.
THIS FITS ME TO A
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done, I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and summer days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun, Of happy memories that I leave When life is done.
