My Light is Out

My light is fading, my muscles spent

Please try and be content

As my light leaves please do not grieve

With you all in my heart a new light will start

Remember me with joy and laughter

And I’ll wait for you in the Ever-After.

– Elaine Avery

A Memorial Ceremony for family and friends will take place in the spring.
