The main reason I have been 'few and far between with my posts lately is because last week our company and our community lost someone very special. He lost his battle with cancer after a dozen years or more. He was a fighter, that is for sure! He's been with the company I work for since 1975-1976. He was very active in the community and the boards and organization such as Salvation Army, Chamber, Kiwanis, etc. He was a huge part of his church...a Sunday School Teacher, Youth Mentor, and much more! He was married for 9 years to his darling of a wife. He has two grown sons, two grown stepdaughters, and 3 grandchildren. He was like a father to my husband. He was a friend. He was extremely social, funny, witty, helpful, brave, and compassionate. Work was very strange last week. I'm glad he's at peace but still very sad he's not around. The service was beautiful. The poem above is "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost. I remember back to The Outsiders from the 80s as it was recited but it's always stuck with me throughout the years as one of my favorite Robert Frost Poems, too!
