Epitaph by Chad Folkening

When I die, give what’s left of me away
If you need to cry,
Cry for your brother and sister
And when you need me,
Put your arms around your loved ones and
Give them what you need to give to me.
I want to leave you something,
Something better than words or sounds.

Look for me in the people I’ve known or loved.
You can love me most
By letting hands touch hands,
By letting hearts touch hearts,
And by letting go of
Spirits who need to be free.

Love does not die, bodies do.
When all that’s left of me is love,
Give me away.

Thank you Mom for bringing us into the world,
giving us the strength to push
forward and instill in us our qualities to
Continuously Grow and Learn.

May you rest in Peace Mom, God Bless

Your Loving Sons, Heath, and Chad

  1. I’ve learned quite a bit about Barbara and what a great person she was. My condolences to her family and friends. We hope this page in a small way can help celebrate her life and her memory. “…it’s not the years in your life that count; it’s the life in your years.”
