Coach’s Challenge for 2-16-2014 “Aging”

Good day, team.The challenge this week is short and bittersweet due to the death of my mother in law.   Jean White was a modern woman who lived her 93 years with grit and humor. She leaves a legacy of many years of community service, a successful career in the insurance industry, and a healthy family with lots of grand and great grandchildren.  In her memory, I am posting this poem my husband wrote as a result of her passing.

Poem on Aging

The vanguard is down

Arthur Lloyd, reckless father

Jean Vivian, valiant mother

 

Both gone

 

 

I am drafted, trained poorly

 

And sent to the front

 

Suddenly in change and clueless

 

In a fight that cannot be won

 

 

Purple scars cover recent wounds

 

With more to come surely

 

before the final blow

 

Perhaps now its just a matter

 

of earning style points

 

 

~David White

 

Have a good week,

Kathleen
