Remembering...55

I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Bill Russell or Pop as everyone knows him. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of his death. Dave, his mother and I went to visit the grave site. It was washed in the vibrant colors of Fall. Here are a few photos, then a poem at the bottom.





A Continuation

 Who can quiet the wind
or settle the tides-
Capture a snowflake
and not expect it to melt?

Life is brought into the world,
but can't be prevented from leaving-
Even Summer loses its
warming heat.

Life in bloom, is vibrant
but far to short and
one's breath hushes.

However-
while death touches the soul,
it does not control forever

As each new day
brings the rise of dawn,
so too life will continue-
for it is meant to be.

You Michiganders are a couple weeks ahead of us with the fall foliage. Good stuff! That's a nice part of the country up there.
