When I leave behind worn out old bones

And go to my eternal home,

I’ll still remember those remaining here;

My children, grandchildren will still be dear.

Just as you’ll always love me in your hearts,

I’ll love and remember you though I depart.

Remember as I live a life that’s sublime,

I will pray you love life as I did in my time.

Talk of me often, I’ll listen from there—

Each mention of me will remind me you care.

Don’t ever forget me, but don’t sorrow in vain;

Remember, dear loved ones, we will meet again.

        In memory of  “the other grandma”–Name Withheld
