When it' time to farewell, you may not take those words so well. Tears may fall, hearts may stop. All the world may seem to drop. But when it's all over you may start to feel, a ray of sunshine, as you heal.
So sorry for your loss of your sister, mother, grandmother and the like. Shirley was very nice. I remember going to visit her and Dean in Brigham City with Alverta and Alan.
