My dear friend

Full of passion

Coloring my world with your dying

Holding my heart in fragile hands

One of many hearts you hold

In hands which are never full

I don't want you to  be gone!

Full of fire

Full of life 

Living 

Loving

Laughing

Today and everyday

I pray

And envision a healing green light

Surrounding and suspending 

Lifting you up

in comfort

in peace

to ease your transition

from here to there

And today until forever

You

Pushing me forward to some unknown destination

breathing life into a forgotten dream

Your finals acts on Earth to inspire

To love and embrace

You will live eternal in my heart and mind

Just beautiful Jenny; adding my prayers to yours.  Hugs to you and the rest of the family; I know this must be so hard for you all.

A beautiful friend you are -- lovely, sad thoughts.

I worked on this poem for over a week. Finally had to set it free. Thank you Antoinette and JT.

Thank you for setting it free, Jenny. Love from me.

`

I sometimes (today at a mennonite sawmill) say:

`

Lift each other up, and carry one another's burden

Pray a gentle thought for me, and I'll remember you

and if a thoughtful pray don't help me, it might you.

`

I thought that today at a local sawmill. Neighbors.

I've read this a dozen times, Jenny, it really is amazing writing and your heart shines so achingly bright....

My hope was to take over the feed and the top rated column with her old posts and new ones AND make sure she saw the out pouring of love. I'm pleased to say this is happening right now. I envision a little dome of happiness over her home. 

Thank you Emily, Art and JT. We can make the world small enough to reach one another.

Lovely your thoughtfulness ...

Lovely her heart ...

Beautiful, Jenny. I envision the same...

Art...I love your prayer. It says everything.
