  1. I thought of you both, just the other day.
    and how before you left, I didn’t get to say…

    How very special the two of you are,
    But of course you know that, even from afar.

    There were a lot of hugs and laughs, each time we met,
    If you were still here, there’d be a lot more I bet.

    You couldn’t stay any longer, you had to go.
    Life is like that, this I know.

    We have our memories of you, from yesterday,
    But we didn’t want that, we wanted you to stay.

    I will remember how playing Yahtzee with you Grandma, put a smile on my  face,
    and how you always had peppermints in your purse, just in case!

    Papa, I won’t forget the smell of cedar, in your workshop,
    And your choice in hats, you were tops!

    And the times when I laugh, thinking about you,
    You’ll be smiling back, because that’s what you do.

    Love Darrin

  2. That’s our Mom, a very caring mom and grandmother with the best sense of humor ever, and we think that’s where we all got it from. She could take things seriously, but always put a twist to it, too.
    Miss you Mom Love Betty X
