I really love your book

I really love your book. It helps me when I have sad days. It takes me to another world. It means more because the book is written about family. I can just picture the things you write about. You are such an inspiration. I wish I could have grown up with you by my side. You have such a talent.

A Carpenter’s carpenter

A Carpenter’s carpenter

Hearts hurt this mourning, echoes quiet grief

For a husband-father slipped beyond autumn’s leaf

Into winter’s winds so harsh, who can bear the pains?

Yesterday his nearness felt today only his remains.

Remember love like it was, unbroken   circles knew

Life’s smoothness for time as it was, he and you

Recall family’s happiness given each a measure

A Carpenter of Scripture cradles a carpenter your treasure.
