We have been very blessed in the past week by our many friends who have extended comfort as we process the passing of Stan’s father.  Your friendships are the sunflowers in our life’s garden. Thank you.

Friendships are like Flowers
In the Garden of Life

They are watered with tears
Of heartache and joy.
And warmed by the sunshine
Of love.
Some are delicate and must
Be handled with care.
Some are short lived
And fade quickly.

But others last a life time
And each year as life’s
Pruning shears cut deeper,
The friendship and the
Friend become more beautiful.
The roots grow deeper
The thorns are easier to
Overlook and the
Beautiful fragrance like
Pleasant memories lingers on.
