Good times, good friends


Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all.

If you can only remember me with tears, then don’t remember me at all .

Remember who you are and where you come from; otherwise, you don’t know where you are going.  Perhaps the day may come when we shall remember these sufferings with joy.  When you can’t remember why you’re hurt, that’s when you’re healed.

Of my infancy I can speak little, only I do remember that in the fourth year of my age I had the measles and our little Scottie dog.

Remember Jamie, our beautiul Son, always tell the truth. Then you’ll never have to remember what you said the last time.

Parents who wonder where the younger generation is going should remember where it came from.

Remember that lost time does not return.

Please remember we all come from the same one and we will all return to that one, so there is no reason for fighting

We need to remember across generations that there is as much to learn as there is to teach.

Remember that the most valuable antiques are dear old friends  .We have to remember that no matter how much hardship we go through in our life, there is always going to be that fragile place in our heart.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn  But most of all remember, three things are needed for a good life, good friends, good food, and good song.

Thanks to my good friends which are but a handful, to my good husband Denis for providing me with all the good food and song I shall ever need and for loving me in spite of it all.and of course for our lovely son Jamie who is the light of our lives and who we love more than life itself …………..Helen

Now this story has been created from nearly real life experiences by cousin Janet Quilietti.

Helen, Denis and Jamie
