Another of Passions finest poets work has been recognized and Martie's beautiful, tributes of poetry for her daughter Michelle are going to be included in a book!  
Christine A. Adams is writing a book titled,
ABC'S of Grief: A Handbook for Survivors,
which is scheduled for publication by Baywood Publishing Company, Inc. in the year 2002.  
She is including Martie's poems:
"Still and Always Love,"
"February 21, Every Year,"
"You Leave me with Permanence",
"Paper Memories."  
She contacted Martie after reading her poetry at a webpage dedicated to lost loved ones.
If you would like to see where she discovered Martie, -- here is the link.

Congratulations Martie!!
Now many others will know of the magic that your pen and muse create, and will see the beauty we here at Passions have had the pleasure and honor to read.

What a wonderful thing to happen to you Martie.  This is now a permanent record of your love for Michelle that is published and will be keeping her memory alive but also lending your words to help others. This is something you will treasure always, as we do your poetry.  Congratulations to you Martie, as you deserve only the best.

Congratulations, Martie! Your poems for Michelle are the shining gems in a body of work you've created that's simply as great as poems get. *S* I'm glad they're reaching another audience. *S*
