You told us
of a necklace that held
with your daughter
and stories that spanned many locations
You sculpted me in
a reading position one day
and called me ‘Read-ey’.
Sometimes the struggle makes us stumble
You said, ‘Never give up. Never blame yourself.
Always keep trying’
Sunshine on a cloudy day.
Your fear was a bear and
though you wanted to run away
you faced him.
You never stopped challenging yourself
‘He was always there for people
‘He could tell a joke with a straight face’
‘He would have wanted us to laugh’
We miss you.
