Dearest Bethany:

When we meet again
The universe will rejoice;

The galaxy will throw a party;

And the sun will dance

Love. Mom.

It's funny how the years just fly, once young now has grown.

The happiest moments of yesteryear, the greatest story ever told.

Though now we must part, your still hear inside our hearts, and we're still right there with you.

Although it's over now, we still live somehow, and I know we always will.

We'll be with you again.

Love always;

Robert, De Anne, BreAnna and BrookLyn Barron

Remember Me ........ ........ ........
As the wind stirs the leaves ...
Remember Me As the evening sunset cast its rosy glow ...
Remember Me As you smell the earth after a fresh, spring rain ...
Remember Me As you hear the sound of a child's laughter ...
Remember Me As the warm summer sunshine caresses your skin ...
Remember Me As the first winter snow flake falls to the ground ...
Remember Me As the smell of spring flowers tantalize your senses ...
Remember Me As you are wakened in the morning by the song of a bird ...
Remember Me As the days gently ease, one into another ...
Remember Me As you greet a smile on a friendly face ...
Remember Me As you walk through life ...
Remember Me For I shall ...
Remember You.
