She Teaches ... She Touches
~*Marge Tindal*~



In memoried tribute of
Ginger Michelle Chadwick


Somewhere among her childhood pages
she felt the dedicated call
To tend the needs of those in seek
wanting for them to learn it all~

What a gift she brought to them
of knowledge and understanding
Getting back more than she gave
a wealth of love notwithstanding~

Impacting a life lasts forever
It takes a special kind of touch
One that comes back year after year
beyond the halls of school and such~

A moment everlasting
writ in pages of the learned mind
Somewhere down the road of life
a teacher's words are remembered as kind~

Delicate moments of sweet recall
when she teaches ... she touches
the lives of them all~
~


~Larry - this one's for you and your family~
~Find comfort in knowing that her impact
will live on forever in the students she touched~

~*The pen of the poet never runs out of ink, as long as we breathe.*~

Marge,

You always have the right words for all times.  I know these will be long remembered by her family.

Death comes not when we cease to breathe, but when we cease to dream.

A beautiful tribute Marge. It's amazing how many lives a teacher touches with not only her lessons ... but with her heart.  

Best wishes,

Margie girl darling heart sister this is so incredibly touching and heart warming. Only you could have written this so well and so truthfully too. You paint with words darling heart almost as well as you paint with love. The strokes of your pen sketch in the outline, then with your masterly use of words you bring the picture to life. Utterly utterly exquisite writing

This is awesome darling heart and a wonderful poem from you I love it utterly utterly


Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy


Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the eathquake wind and fire
Oh

SuthernGal~
Oh, sometimes it seems that there just aren't enough words for moments like this~

As the mother of two who teach ... I do know that they will each leave their marks on the paths of seeking minds~

Teachers are so very special ... and Ginger's students have shared so much with Larry and the family~
She's so worth the remember~
*Hugs*

Marge,
How precious this is to me. Such an incredible gift you have given. And it keeps on giving. The tender truths you write are so accurate of my little girl. Thank you for being so thoughtful.
Larry

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
