Change Bereavement Leave

From my picture gallery

 

The beauty of a memory,

is that its always there.

Like a penny in your pocket

you can take it anywhere.

 

And when your heart is heavy,

and your eyes are filled with tears,

you can focus on a memory,

and travel through the years.

 

Your heart can visit happy times,

when laughter filled the air,

and the presence of your loved one,

will lessen your despair.

 

So as you travel on in life,

take comfort as you go,

in a lifetime of "sweet memories,"

of one who loved you so
