We celebrated Mom's life in August of 2013, at the camp of course.
I prepared this MS PowerPoint presentation for that celebration. It ran throughout the day.
It is a 45 minute long tribute to our mother, authored by the youngest of her children.
It was a labor of love.
It is a 275 MB file and will take minutes to download. The amount of time will depend on your bandwidth.
Also, it requires MS Office PowerPoint or a viewer.
Granite & Marble
I stand in a place of granite and marble,
Stones are marked with names and dates,
For the forgotten faces frozen below the cold, cold ground.
The wakening morn shows snow and white,
And down, down, down it falls to the stones and light,
As a shroud that settles on faces in the ground.
Of the sky, a swirling stew of gray and gloom,
But for a charcoal crow void of flight and light,
For it perched, alone, on an edifice of life-no more.
Each stone that marks the names and dates,
Tell stories far too short and solemn,
And miss the faces and years of stories left untold.
