What do you say to someone you love who is
quickly nearing the end of their life at 57 years old?
I really don't know.
But scanning in my daughter's drawings and writing a cheezy Dr. Suess "like" poem felt right tonight and gave me something to do with the waves of sadness.

Goodbye Danny
a "GREAT" bye for you,
(as great a bye as I could do).

Goodbye Christmas tree
Goodbye smile

Hello tears all single file

Goodbye arms that held you tight

Hello memories, shining light.

Goodbye Danny, love you—I do!
Hello heart that's missing you.
Love, Cath

Thanks to my little Piper for all her drawings in this goodbye to her uncle Danny

I read this yesterday but couldn't bring myself to respond right away. But I think you found the place you were looking for. This is such a wonderful tribute.
