“Feel no guilt in laughter, she knows how much you care. Feel no sorrow, in a smile that she’s not here to share. You cannot grieve forever; she would not want you to. She’d hoped you can carry on, the way you always do. So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared. The days you spend together all the happiness you shared.”
