To my friends and family, a little farewell note from me:
The time has come for me to leave.
Miss me, please, but do not grieve.
There are many things to do and see:
Light a candle or a fire.
Choose some flowers (roses, tulips, freesias, pansies, forget-me-nots and pussy willows) to admire.
Then, sit and take the time to pause with fresh-brewed coffee in your hand and realize that it is so grand.
To wake each morning to a day that is filled with things to do and say.
Go for a walk, enjoy the scenery on your bike, go golfing, play good music, read a book, play bridge, take a car ride in the country, watch the morning sunrise and evening sunset and when winter comes go for a ski.
And other’s needs don’t overlook – take time to visit with your friends,
And if need be, make amends. Enjoy a glass of wine.
And dining that is really fine.
Adopt a cat or dog and cherish their lasting friendship.
Marvel in all the wonders of the world that nature offers
Go to a concert or a play, take a journey of discovery,
A lovely way to the end a day.
All these things were dear to me With family and friends top priority.
And so, I will miss all of you. But now, it is time for me to say “Adieu”.
