Slater -- Consuelo (Connie) Slater January 9, 1925-June 26, 2002Forget that I ever had heartache And remember I've had loads of fun. Forget that I've stumbled and blundered And sometimes fell by the way. Remember I have fought some hard battles And won, ere the close of the day. Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day, But in summer just gather some flowers And remember the place where I lay, And come in the shade of evening When the sun paints the sky in the west. Stand for a few moments beside me And remember only my best.Art, Walter, Jessi Rae, Charles, Patrick, Chris, Connie, Andrew and Michael
