Let us not forget
those who came before us -
Their lives,
however long or brief,
touch us all in so many ways

Let us learn
from those who came before us -
Their experiences,
however exciting or mundane,
have shaped our world today

Let us honour
those who came before us -
Their legacy,
however great or small,
is ours to carry forward

--------

Some words of advice for the few folks out there who don't quite understand the concept of politeness:

Today's not a good day for rudeness
Tomorrow doesn't look promising either
Why don't you just bottle it until your name appears in the heading of one of these memorial pages?
Then those of us who can still hear you can ignore you a while longer.

--------

Bear this in mind;
What goes on the web is there, somewhere, for ever, for whoever chooses to find it.
So, if you choose to be rude, you may upset me for a few minutes…
But the whole world will know you for the ignorant low-life that you are.
Do you really want to risk that sort of immortality?

Yes – I send out edit requests
Yes – I send out thousands of edit requests
Maybe I sent one to you
Maybe I sent dozens to you
Thank you for making the change
Thank you for making all the changes
But –
If I sent you a handful of the same corrections
This is where you stop and think
"There's a distinct possibility that I uploaded
quite a few more like these -
Maybe I should take a while and check my data
and fix the rest before Adrienne sends me another handful!"
To which my answer would be "Bless your cotton socks – thank you!"

My Last FindAGrave Will and Testament!

If I die before I wake
I beg my spouse these pages to take
To lovingly tend through thick and thin
And safely keep the memories therein
But if my spouse should groan in pain
I trust my sproggs will take the rein
There's cousin Pat - She'll help because
They're nice like that down there in Oz

To all you budding gravers out there
Keep up the good work and don't despair
Remember your efforts are always appreciated
Even when thanks is thinly reciprocated
Bear in mind my efforts at poetry stink
But the message is clear I hopefully think
A d'base is only as good as the input
So for goodness sake check on your spelling! Please!

I don't think for a moment this ditty'll inspire
And I'm sure I'll upset somebody and irk their ire
But I've worked hard on this project for many long years
I'm proud of my efforts and may you all hear
Once upon a time this Brit did her bit!
(But her poetry never improved!)


These words of wisdom are Adrienne originals.
