Dear Marilee and family, We are so sorry to hear of Roger's passing. May you have comfort in knowing that old friends are thinking of you all.

After Glow
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 and echo
whispering 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.
