  1. Rest In Paradise Beautiful Man ๐Ÿ–ค

    When I come to the end of my journey
    And I travel my last weary mile
    Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
    And remember only the smile

    Forget unkind words I have spoken
    Remember some good I have done
    Forget that I ever had heartache
    And remember I’ve had loads of fun

    Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered
    And sometimes fell by the way
    Remember I have fought some hard battles
    And won, ere the close of the day

    Then forget to grieve for my going
    I would not have you sad for a day
    But in summer just gather some flowers
    And remember the place where I lay

    And come in the shade of evening
    When the sun paints the sky in the west
    Stand for a few moments beside me
    And remember only my best.

    I Love You Sanford
    35 yrs of Unconditional Love
