Todd will never be forgotten. ❤️ 2/13/69 - 7/20/20 Feel no guilt in laughter, He knows how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile That he’s not here to share. You cannot grieve forever, He would not want you to. He’d hope that you would carry on The way you always do. So talk about the good times And the ways you showed you cared. The days you spent together, All the happiness you shared. Let the memories surround you, A word someone may say Will suddenly recapture A time, an hour, a day. That brings him back as clearly As though he were still here, And fills you with the feelings That he is always near. For if you keep those memories You will never be apart
