Ron Cole is my Uncle by traditional standards but is really more my "Dad" So to read this poem and knowing him -they are one and the same. His poetry is this case reflects the type of caring person he truly is!
I understand your loss, Lou--My grandfather passed away from cancer years ago. It's a hard experience to lose those you care for, no matter who you're dealing with...Read your journal as well. I remember once hearing someone say, "It never stops hurting, and it never really fades--it just returns less often." He could have been talking about grief, or he could have been talking about chronic indigestion. Up to you.
wow, aint he just the nicest guy? heart of pure gold! his poetry always leaves me in awe, and a lot of the time, speechless. i'll bet you were overjoyed with this! god bless ya. i'll bet ya grandma likes it too! warm wishes to you and all your family today, sweetheart. michelle
