Mary   Leave a comment

Those of you who read, my memoir, Without Faith, ( would remember Mary. Today marks ten years since she has gone on to her next life. It was the greatest gift and privilege to see her off – and be part of her journey as a caregiver.  She had a personality that was beyond describing in just a few short sentences or a poem.


I’ve met some women in my life

Strong in their convictions

But never one like Mary

Independent, strong, and never wrong


My heart broke loose when she died

Don’t know why I was so surprised

For the tears that I cried

Were for the mother I had never known
