Long, lonely winter, later spring,
Lazy summer days, fond memories bring,
autumn colors fade with the loss;
A dear friend is
kneeling at the foot of the cross.
his epitaph in words that rhyme,
His love for his
friends made him one of a kind.
He was funny,
gregarious, thoughtful too,
No wonder he is missed
by much more than a few.
Prayers are unceasing, His Promises
Yet cancer continues, and our prayers do,
Too many fall before cancer's vicious toll
Intercession's necessity: mind, body, and soul.
Two sisters join the unending throng
Angel's called to Heaven, it seems it's so wrong.
One fought the battle of cancer for years,
care-giver just drowned in her river of tears.
How fragile this Christmas,
mixed memories they bring,
Knowing we can only count
on our Savior and King.
And glory in the time God
allows each one to share
With family, and friends
and our grandchildren, so fair.
brings so many things to mind,
I keep searching for
words that are gentle and kind.
To let you know that
it's YOU that I'm thinking of,
"Wealthy" New Year,
and "REMEMBER" my love.
karen, Christmas 2008
year of loss of so many I loved,
and so many who are
suffering from cancer,
and other illnesses and
I found it necessary to tell you all
U R LOVED
