In the tumult of living, very few interactions leave one with a sense of enrichment. This one did. Thank you.
What a remarkable woman was Mary Jane, Dying at an age too young. You have written the most incredible heartfelt piece. This would be a beautiful piece for Mary Jane's eulogy at her final farewell. Thank you Francie, please let me know if you have a beautiful celebration for Mary Jane's life.
Once in your life, forever on your heart. An amazing poem, tells the take of holes fragile and fast moving life actually is. Although I do not know Mary Jane, I do know how these emotions spill. Thank you for the artistic truth. PEACE
