I hear a dove’s cry through the pane…
she coos her soft and mournful tune
about a loved one lost too soon.
This illness…was it preordained?
As you slip helm for higher realm
we‘re left to bear this earthly plane.
While waiting time to heal this wound
I hear the dove’s cry through the pain.

My dearest sister-in-law Susan is resting easy now from her more than 2 year battle with liver cancer. She earned her wings late this afternoon. My heart mourns, but also celebrates this beautiful woman whom I loved dearly was proud to call sister for the past 28 years. Godspeed, dear Susan....until we meet again...
