"A Life Well Lived"

"A life well-lived is a precious gift

of hope and strength and grace

from someone who has made our world

a brighter, better place.

It's filled with moments sweet and sad,

with smiles and sometimes tears,

with friendships formed and good times shared

and laughter through the years.

A life well-lived is a legacy of joy and pride and pleasure,

A loving, lasting memory our grateful hearts will treasure."
