Epitaph for Emily


In memory of…
the bloom from a flower
that lasted only
but for a season-
and as summer passes
into autumn
our memory of the bloom,
its fragrance and beauty
will last for us
throughout all seasons.

Emily....I will miss you so.


Robert



 if you can dream; you can fly...if you are flying; you are dreaming.

Very beautiful Robert. And indeed, it's nice to see you back around  

 I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

Robert-
Beautiful sentiment on someone
who was loved by you.  
How lucky you are to have loved
two Emily's.
How sad to lose even one.

Also glad to see you back.
I didn't authorize your ICQ either.
Sorry, love ... didn't know who it was.
Try it again.

Thanks to all of you my friends.

I hope you all have an "Emily" in your life at least once.

I need to make a phone call or send a card to my "daughter" Emily.

The other Emily was a daughter of one of my customers. She was killed in an auto accident. She was so kind to me while I worked on her house. We just became close somehow. The day of her death I went to her home and there was only the family. I went in and sat at the table and cried with them.

I was just the siding guy...but I felt much more at that moment.

Robert
