You would've been 88 today.you survived a sinking ship you outlived your hombres.you got your hands dirty. you Lived,you Loved ,you Laughed .you raised your family,direct offspring or not.you Drank the cold ones.best of all,you walked the line,as it were.
as i held onto you in that hospital bed.Seein you in your time of dying .then at the funeral, Hearin the love letters grandma wrote to you years ago. it's a hard pill to swallow.but for you. i will persist
