    Katherine's Memorial Poem: I'll Live On.

    Thursday, September 05 2013

    By special request. is sharing the poem from Katherine Chancellor's memorial service as many readers have written in asking about it. Enjoy.

    I'll Live On.

    Don't cry for me in sadness; don't weep for me in sorrow,
    for I will be beside you, as sure as comes tomorrow.
    My body has gone but my spirit lives on, as does my love for you.
    Just as in life. I'll watch over you, I always will be true.
    My blood lives on in my children, how I've watched them grow up with pride.
    I'll live on within them, always by their side.
    I know my jokes weren't always funny and jobs weren't always done.
    Just try and always remember the good times, the days when we had fun.
    Reach out if you need me, for I will always be near.
    Just talk to me, as if I am there, I promise I will hear.
    For I'll live on, with in your mind, we'll never be apart,
    as long as you keep my memory, deep within your heart.
    So lift up your hearts, don't be sad, my spirit hasn't gone.
    While you're still there, so am I, I really will live on.

    The 2 days they were saying their final goodbyes this week was so sweet. I just sat with tears flowing as they all placed their rose at the end of her ceremony, and said goodbye for the last time. Couldn't help but to cry. Very nicely done.

    Yes, I have to give this one to the writers/producers. They did good. I didn't expect to cry, but it was a tear jerker. Mrs. C became a part of my family for many years and have watched other movies, mostly westerns, she was in as a young woman/girl. My Dad and I loved those movies. Anyhoo, gotta stop before I tear up again. She will be missed terribly.
