May, 29 1918 ~ September 17, 2007
Passed away peacefully at the age of 89.
What I would really like to be
Is what my mother is to me
To her I can always talk
About which paths I should walk
And I’d surely take a bet
That she’s the oldest teenager yet.
To light a fire upon the shore
She would ask for nothing more.
Fishing in our favorite creek
We try to go once a week
80 lb. line and a stick
She couldn’t cast far but she pulled in quick
A Christmas tree upon the bluff
Up to get it we did puff
Too big to get on board
Of firewood there’d be many a cord.
A dance hall floating, burning bright
It was quite an awesome sight
Two teenagers in a boat of blue
An unknown compliment they pay to you
All these things and more we’ve done
God, we’ve had so much fun.
All the time when I look back
A smile is what I never lack.
For though there have been times of blue
I never think of them with you.
