I wrote the following for my Aunt
Jean's memorial service that was
held today in Atlanta.
She was a beautiful person.

in the midst of the war to end all wars
a shining soul entered this world

of mountain folk , living quiet and simple

in simplicity the most important things
in life are taught

and revealed.

a childhood not rushed, but tended
as a garden

a garden that will survive.

a great depression,

but it never broke her optimism.

brother can you spare a dime?

sister! what a meal!

her love revealed by

her dance in the kitchen,

breaking bread together

uniting hearts in love.

happy days are not here again, they are
always here
the trick is in the perception

she knew the trick
she had the heart

loved ones across the world
in danger fighting, yet another war,
she remained strong in the
strength of simplicity and love.

and hope,

always hope

keeping on the sunnyside
a countenance so bright

nothing but blue skies do I see

nothing but family

and kin



abounding love

that is ever seeking to shine on us all.

she was a carrier, an agent

always in service to this love

always a shining soul.

we are all rich, so rich

nothing but blue skies

should we see.
