‘My Legacy’
Told by Shirley to great granddaughter Chelsea Adams on June 28, 2007
When I die, give what is left to the children.
If you need to cry, cry for the brother who is walking beside you.
Put your arms around anyone, and give them what you need to give to me.
I want to leave you with something, something better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I have known and loved, and if you cannot live without me, then let me live on in your eyes, your mind, and your acts of kindness.
Love does not die, people do.
So when all that is left of me is love, give me away.
