I’ve lived a good life and enjoyed as much of it as an obsessive-compulsive neurotic could. Do not mourn the passing, celebrate the life.

An old Weavers’ song, When I’m On My Journey, expresses my thoughts.

“When I’m on my journey, don’t you weep after me,
I don’t want you to weep after me.
Every lovely river must go home to the sea.
I don’t want you to weep after me.

My wishes are for memorials to be made to the Roswell Humane Society, 703 E. McGaffey, Roswell, NM 88203, it would be much appreciated by the animals there.

I wrote this myself, tongue in cheek.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory. An online registry can be accessed at www.ballardfuneralhome.com.
