Being sick with a snotty nose A cough, fatigue, one of those colds??? For goodness sake's everyone knows Grandmothers are too sophicated To wear anything but fancy clothes Surely not a Kleenex box attached To their chair, and looking unkempt And flowing with dispair While still sick and in the bed A horrible event ran through the homestead In the middle of early morn During an outright winter storm A car left the road and into my yard Dropping parts and getting scarred Crashed landing like thunder in a flash Shaking the sturdy window sash Two DOS(dead on scene) next to flower bed Two living one barely by a thread One lesson learned during this ordeal Never ever get behind the wheel While drinking, for that can kill Twenty-two years a very short life Not long enough for the musican's fife To play for one to dance and enjoy Just barely out the door, still just a boy Lesson two learned from this trip around No matter how bad the situation sounds Life could issue out a much worse thing Leaving grief and suffering in its wake It is good to be alive for goodness sake Even though my nose drips goop And I am in on the latest scoop My heart aches for the losses that linger Just out my front door, where death points finger About 3:30 Friday morning January 22, 2016 Chasen Nicklason age 22 died A young lady in the front passenger side died One man in the back seat in serious condition Another young man also injuried This was in my front yard.. Chasen A. Nicholson, age 22, of Yatesville, died Friday, January 22, 2016 in Thomaston. Mr. Nicholson was born January 13, 1994 in Thomaston to Deanna R. Nicholson and Chuck D. Nicholson II. He was a Diesel Mechanic for Speedway Ford in Griffin, a member of the Technical College Honor Society, and a member of Lila Memorial Baptist Church. He is survived by his parents, Deanna R. Nicholson of Yatesville, and Chuck D. Nicholson II, of Thomaston; sisters, Paige Nicholson (Daniel Peterson), D.J. Nicholson, and April Nicholson, all of Yatesville; grandparents, Paul (Wanda) Clark, and Shirley Nicholson. He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Charlie Nicholson; and great-grandmother, Claudia Raybon. Funeral serves for Mr. Nicholson will be held on Monday, January 25, 2016 at 2:00 PM in the Chapel of Coggins Funeral Home. The family will receive friends on Monday, January 25, 2016 from 12:00 - 2:00 PM. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that memorial donations be made to the St. Jude Children's Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis TN 38105 or to www.stjude.org Finis'

The title caught my attention. So sorry about what happened right in your front yard, Sara. Life can just be taken away from us just like that. Makes one appreciate it more. I hope you're feeling better. Tale care always. :-)

PD, I did not know this family personally..I have heard of the Nicholsons around here but I don't think that I have ever met any of them personally..I know that this has to be hard for the family..Someone said that the young lady had just had a baby so the baby is left without parents..Thanks for stopping by.Sara

You are quite welcome.. It is almost impossible to give a good comment back here then comment on the person's poems as well and I feel it is more important to comment on their work to encourage them to keep writing..Sara
