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 hope that you would carry on
The way you always do
So talk about the good times
And the ways you showed her you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared
Let memories surround you
A word someone might say
Will suddenly recapture
A time, an hour, a day
That brings her back as clearly
As though she was still here
And fills you with the feelings
That say she’s always near
or if you keep those moments
You will never be apart
And they will live forever
Safely locked with in your heart.

Mrs Dinkins was an awesome person that will be greatly missed
I remember when I first met her when Jeannette and I were Freshman at Murray State I thought she was very sweet but Dont think you are going to get away with anything.
My Deepest sympathies goes out to you and the family
Love Clara
