I want to share this amazingly beautiful poem that my dear friend, Vivian West, wrote for me. I met Vivian five years ago. She lost a treasured daughter, Kathy, several years prior to my meeting her. Unbelievably, a year and a half later my precious son, Graham, died. Our friendship has gone to a whole different level with the shared anguish of losing a beloved child. What a blessing she is to me. I don't believe that it is a coincidence that we are in each others lives. The lovely rose with this poem was painted by a special friend of Vivian's, Anne Higgins. I treasure this poem and our friendship.
