Faye Holden and her friends graduating outside the Hicks Building

The following piece is taken from the Crematorium Service held for Faye on 13 July 2020.


I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days.

I'd like tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun,

Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.
