REMEMBER ME Don't remember me with sadness, Don't remember me with tears, Remember all the laughter, We've shared throughout the years. Now I am contented, That my life it was worthwhile, Knowing that I passed along the way, I made somebody smile. When you are walking down the street And you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps, Only half a step behind, So please don't be unhappy, Just because I'm out of sight, Remember that I'm with you, Each morning, noon, and night. Acknowledgement The friends of Hazel Norvell Urquhart acknowledge with deep appreciation your kind expressions of sympathy. May God continue to bless each of you.
