happy birthday dear Melissa



only 34
beautiful through and through
Sam blessed our lives
with you

...

lovely weather for a sleigh-ride together



no kidding...snow on the roof tops
the grass
the deck
not much, but it is there

...

Bobby Skewes, you never came home



no one prepared me
inscribed 58,000 plus
one boy, Bobby Skewes
my next door neighbor
helped me learn how to ride a bike
six then...he was eight
i found his name
touched it  

this wall is enormous
stretches much too far
astonished--
is there no other way?
an empty chair at the table
forever more
a life hardly lived

to honor this life offering
"God shed His grace on Thee"
America
abundance
at such a cost
thank you
