When you think of me, please don’t cry

Even though it may have been too soon to say goodbye

No more worries, no more cries

My time on earth was filled with laughs and butterflies

Remember the sparkle in my big eyes or the dimples in my cheek and chin

When you think of me, please don’t cry

I still have kickball games and popsicles in the sky

I am at peace, family, consistent happiness and unlimited pies

The love that I received was enough to make me feel loved in a lifetime

And always remember the love you gave me I returned a thousand times and in my mommy’s arms I’ll always lie.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
