Order of Service
Elder Frederick Smith, Sr. – Presiding

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an Afterglow of smiles when day is done.
I’d like to leave an echo…whispering softly down the ways of happy times and
laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave behind when day is done.
