Dad, This is from the bereavement department from hospice of the piedmont this poem meant a lot to me when I thought of you. I love you so much and even miss you more but I will see you again one day! When I die if you need to weep, cry for your brother or sister. And when you need me, put your arms around anyone and give them what you need to give me. And when you need to see me, look for me in the people Ive known and loved. Love does'nt die, people do. So when all thats left of me is love, Give me away.
