Remember Me Remember me when flowers bloom Early in the spring, Remember me on sunny days In the fun that summer brings. Remember me in the fall As you walk through leaves of gold, And in the wintertime remember me In the stories that are told. But most of all remember Each day-right from the start I will be forever near For I live within your heart. There will be no visitation or services.
