A gentle breeze cools this sunny day as I sit by the river.  My heart aches for my yesterdays',  I am visiting my hometown.  My old friends stop by, but not long enough for my satisfaction.  I am filled with love for this place, and for the people who live here.

My roots, my childhood, and most of life's hard lessons I learned living on this river.  It is my solace, my comfort, and makes me feel complete.

They say you can never go home again, I say it is the only place on earth where you can go to feel life, love and true friendships.

Let me return again, and again.....let my family always be there to love me, my friends be there to welcome me, and a small part of heaven be waiting to bless me.

Lynn (Hanna) Barany.
