The Garden in Winter

A sympathy card we received contained this wonderful poem for times of grief:

Winter fades the garden now
Where laughter used to flower.
It makes us sad to linger here–
The minutes seem like hours.

But though we only see the loss
Of what we used to know,
In time the warmth of memory
Will make the garden grow–

And shades of love we thought we’d lost
Once again will show . . .

Peeking through the snow.

Dad’s Gone

These are very sad words to type and say. My Dad passed away Sunday, November 25, 2012 after a short illness. He was at home, in his own bed, with Mom knitting beside him. I can’t think of a better way to go.

I’ll be putting together some photos and stories of him . . . later . . . .
