With all of the praying, pleading done,
John died; I was mourning. Grieving won! UNSUPPORTED CODE 

*I know his spirit will be reunited with mine.  Faith keeps us going

    Excellent my friend and thank you for your leading me to enter the contest in the first place, I see Dr. Ram beat me out again, tell him I have bruises, just kidding, How's your health my friend? I pray that the Lord will somehow aid you in your insurance plight an make things better for you, this poem was good as usual but you see when it comes to you I'm biased. God bless

    At those moments when you're missing him, my dear friend, know that he's right there with you...not far at all. God bless. Much love, Annalise

    Sad tale - my father died about 16 months ago - Death is still the greatest indignity. I have never seen this form before - a new one on me! Keep it up! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
