Time it was and what a time it was, it was

A time of innocence, a time of confidences

Long ago it must be, I have a photograph

Preserve your memories they're all that's left you

"Bookends," Simon and Garfunkel...

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she forever rest in peace. Amen.
