*I found this somehow twice Lori, so I copied my reply from your other post ... it is doubly wonderful
Lori, this was absolutely lovely! What wonderful words came from such a sad time. I find that this is when I'm so grateful to be able to write, in those sad times, its so therapeutic, almost as if by placing pen to paper, it gives you license to grieve or just feel sad when you want to. It's such a release.
Your poem was so touching, thank you so much for sharing this with us.
