In Loving Memory

In Loving Memory of My Mom

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people
And the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
And endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty,
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better,
Whether by a healthy child,
A garden patch,
Or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has
Breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
