In Memoriam



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.

Selma Jacobs

October 17th 1946 – April 15th 2008

I’d like to leave
An echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and 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

In memory of my Sister who mothered me, who fathered me, a soul mate, a friend, a shoulder to cry on
Who always had a listening ear, never had an ill thought about anything or anyone and gave wise counsel.
Always and forever within my heart
Alwayn Leacock.

Four candles:

The first candle represents our grief
The pain of losing you is intense
The second candle is our courage
To confront our sorrow
To comfort each other
To change our lives

This third candle
We light in your memory,
For the times we laughed,
The times we cried,
The times we were angry with each other,
The silly things you did the caring and joy you gave us

The fourth candle we light for our love
We light this candle that your light will always shine
As we enter this sad time and share this day of remembrance with family and friends
We cherish the special place in your hearts
That will always be reserved for you
We thank you for the gift your loving brought to us
