This is in honor to a friend's husband,
that passed away to a much better place.
He was a preacher. His wife asked me to
write something for him. Hope you enjoyed it.

    Great words of wisdom Lucilla. I'm sure he'd be honored to have you write this for him. And for those that still remain they can read this and be encouraged to smile more... you're a genuine poet methinks. Keep doing what you do!
