I want to have this somewhere for reference. I needed it for a friend today and didn't have it. It took me 20 minutes to track it down. This is the poem we chose to go in the programs at Mom's memorial service:

After Glow by Helen Lowrie Marshall

I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done,
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
times and bright and
summer days.
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
