    Here is some food for thought…

    Memories keep those we love close to us forever…

    Hold fast to your memories…
    To all of the cherished moments of the past,
    To the blessings and the laughter…
    The joys and the celebrations,
    The sorrow and the tears.

    They all add up to a treasure of fond yesterdays
    That you shared and spent together;
    And they keep the one you loved
    Close to you in spirit and thought.

    The special moments and memories in your life will never change.
    They will always be in your heart…
    Today and forevermore.

    …Linda E. Knight
