Thank you, Doug Ingram. I appreciate your wonderful words as well. This poem about my mother-in-law was promised to my wife, her sister, and our family when Flo’s and Bob’s ashes were interned forever together two weeks ago. It (I) wasn’t ready then.

My intent was to express my own loss first and evolve to an expression of the loss we all felt. Here’s a little more about Mom, a bright light in our lives.

Engaged citizen, poet, musician, humorist, family man. I value irreverence, soulfulness, and a big heart. Offering insight, introspection, shock & aw shucks!
