After Glow

I’d like the memory of me to be happy ones.

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smile when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun

Of happy memories that I leave when my life is done.


The Brown family would like to express their sincerest thanks and

Appreciation to all the family and friends who have shown such heartfelt love and support.

Words cannot express how much your prayers, emails, text, phone calls and

Acts of kindness have meant to us.

We pray that God would continue to comfort and bless you all.
