“Remember me always, but do not grieve for me too
long. I have tried always to comfort you in times of
sorrow, and have made every effort to add joy to your
life. I never wanted to cause you pain.
Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have
eternal sleep in the Earth I do so well.
Please, after your period of grieving for me, make room
in your heart for another. You are the kind of human
being that should always have a friend like me to love.
Your kind and gentle heart should not be wasted on my
memory for too long. Give your love to another. I know
your new friend will never take my place, because we
had something very special.
It may not be quite the same, but a new devoted and
loving companion will in time, become special in their
You loved me very much and I love you. My spirit will
always be with you, and no matter how deep my sleep,
my grateful heart will always remember you.”
