Another Memory

Is it just another memory that is made
When a life ends for a dear friend
Family all gathered to share voices
In a song, before the breaths end.

Years remembered with each generation
A woman always giving of herself
So much that all remember a life
By the photos framed on a shelf.

Even with the pain of a life ending
The good times remain so alive
To live a life so well spent
Is something for all to strive.

Family and friends will gather
Once more to recount these hours
There will always be more to each
Than a space to place fresh flowers.

Family and friends will remember Katherine.

    Thanks to all my friends. Katherine passed on Thursday about 11:30 am, but I just took time to write.

    Am so very sorry for your loss Charles; I know she will be missed by family and dear friends and especially you. Wish I lived closer so I could give you a hug and help you through this difficult time. Know you are in my special thoughts and prayers. Lots of tight hugs my dear friend

  7. Man, I wish there was a “Love” button to push here! A really well-flowing piece here. I thoroughly enjoyed it. God bless.
