July 1, 1946 – November 17, 2019
To the living, I am gone,
To the sad, I will never return. To the angry, I was cheated, But to the happy, I am at peace And to the faithful, I have never left. I cannot speak, but I can listen. I cannot be seen, but my presence can be felt. I can no longer lead, but I can walk beside you.
So as you stand gazing at a beautiful sunset or the moon in its endless sky, As you look in wonder at the colors of a rose or listen to the song of a bird, Remember me.
Remember me in your heart, in your thoughts, and in your memories. Remember the times we loved, The times we fought, The times we laughed, And the times we cried, The times we teased And the times we shared. For if you think of me, I will not have died. I have only gone with the Lord, Buddha.
