After I’m dead, after I’m long gone, after most that I knew have forgotten or have become ashes in the dust, I want you to remember the poem you find the day I died. The poem that read:
“ No matter how long or short I lived,
no matter what I did,
you were most important to me.
You were most important to me because you were my family.
No matter how long or short I knew you, know this:
I cared for you.
And you are someone I will forever miss.

The author's comments:
Whoever you are, always remember that at least one person in this world loves you. Me.
