“ Do not shed tears when I have gone but smile instead because I have lived. Do not
shut your eyes and pray to God that I’ll come back but open your eyes and see all
that I have left behind.

I know your heart will be empty because you cannot see me but still I want you to
be full of the love we shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live only for yesterday or your can be
happy for tomorrow because of what happened between us yesterday.

You can remember me and grieve that I have gone or you can cherish my memory
and let it live on. You can cry and lose yourself, become distraught and turn your
back on the world or you can do what I want - smile, wipe away the tears, learn to
love again and go on.” (David Harkins)
