Family

18 years old, she married the love of her life.

66 years later, he says goodbye.

Family gathered near.

4 generations, together.

Like a nest, their family has been

a nurturing home,

a shelter for returning,

an anchor in storms,

a compass in confusion,

a home built on a strong Foundation.

Now, family is a place for mourning, together.

Safe in that space, they grieve as one.

She is safe too, in a heavenly home

that must resemble the home that they built

through 66 years of hard life and love.
