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

Reads like a winner..I feel your pain..Good luck in the contest...Thanks for stopping by, reading, and commenting on my work..Daddy always told that story of what happened to him and his brother that was two years older than him..Daddy did not say anything about anyone getting hurt or that anyone died..He said they were running looking back and they both hit a brick wall..Knocked them both out..Sara
