When I'm Gone

by Mrs. Lyman Hancock

When I come to the end of my journey and travel my last weary mile,

Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned and remember only the smile

Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done.

Forget that I ever had heartache and remember I've had loads of fun.

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered and sometimes fell by the way

Remember I have fought some hard battles and won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day,

But in summer just gather some flowers and remember the place where I lay.

Then come in the shade of the evening when the sun paints the sky in the west

Stand for a few moments beside me and remember only my best.

Thanks to so many in this community who befriended, supported, Loved and cared for Debbie.  A special thank you to the St. Paris Emergency Squad.


In Debbie's words......

Let us go all together to run the fields and enjoy the weather.

Let the wind scatter our and area doesn't matter.

We hate to say goodbye but rest assured we know the way.

Let the kids know we're not far away waiting for them to join us someday.
