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,
