Arrangements under the direction of Swan Funeral Home, Clinton, CT.

I'd like the memory of me To be a happy one. I'd like to leave an afterglow 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 sunny 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.

May the prayers of those who care for you, help you in this time of sorrow.
May you find comfort in the words written at Act 24:15.

Dear Julie -- I miss your mom. She was a bright light in the middle of the darkness; always full of fun and had a mischievous look in her eyes whenever we dove into her mega box of chocolates or when she was enjoying the birds that came to her feeder. I loved to bring her Communion and enjoyed praying with her in French. I think I also felt a special connection with her because of her lovely Canadian accent - reminded me of my childhood - both my sets of grandparents were from Canada and sounded just like her. She may have been 95 years old, but her outlook was always that of a 30-year old! May God keep her forever close to His heart.
