Joylin Guillory

Dec 19, 1939 — Jun 20, 2020

(Author unknown)

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun Be of happy memories that I leave When my life is done.
