A Carpenterâ€™s carpenter
Hearts hurt this mourning, echoes quiet grief
For a husband-father slipped beyond autumnâ€™s leaf

Remember love like it was, unbrokenÂ Â circles knew
Lifeâ€™s smoothness for time as it was, he and you
Recall familyâ€™s happiness given each a measure
A Carpenter of Scripture cradles a carpenter your treasure.
Poem written October 1986

SOUNDS OF A SISTER

Sounds of a Sister vault into family vision
Captures her warmth in late Summerâ€™s breeze
Kathleen waves to Americaâ€™s flag flying
Church bells paced deliberate a funeral procession wide
A simple coffin wraps a nun In music muffed inside
Prepared prayer seeks a pardon, free clearance at Heavenâ€™s gate

Weâ€™d run by roadways together. Smelling, snorting in Continue reading
ANGELINA, little Teacher
I entered Grande parlour of elegance where is placed bronze statue unique
Beside wide patio glass-paneled doors. â€œShipped from Italy,â€ her Ownerâ€™s critique
Stepping closer, my curious nature sees childâ€™s form, perhaps five, plus one
Clad poor, feet bare, head downcast. Continue reading
Billowed, vast ocean, immeasurable seashore sand
Whispers beloved coupleâ€™s big dreams wondrously grand
Visions held in their hearts shared alone with God Continue reading

It only takes about two seconds to say “I do.” The only thing is that sometimes it takes a lifetime to find the person you want to say it to.
That was the case for 96-year-old Fern Schurr and 83-year-old Paul Tredo. As far as love is concerned, they tied the knot with plenty of time to spare.

Here’s a beautiful poem by Terri Foss, of Washburn, WI.
Where can I find the words to heal the sadness and the pain that has touched your heart.
When words are not enough to say, my heart will speak in many ways. I believe our lives are as God intended them to be.
Although we don’t understand his ways when times feel so unfair, try to remember God will always be there.
All your loved ones from above will guide you with their love. For someday you will see together you all will be.
