So much of who a person is, is contained in the hearts of others. All the good times, the laughter and the tears are held in the memories of those who are touched during one's life. By these memories, lives are enriched. One never dies, because the memories linger on…forever affecting and molding the visions of those with whom one has come in contact. This is the legacy and a solace we can share, when one we love goes away.
