The barn is now one hundred-two years old.
The house is eighty-three.
In addition to our three boys and two grandchildren,
has entertained many animals and pets and gardens. (Or did they entertain us?)
The neighbor kids have grown.
They now have children and grandchildren of their own.
Our son, Tim, died five years ago.
family love and CHERISHED MEMORIES
will never change.
The porch swing now provides a peaceful place
all the times of joy and sadness.
We were sitting on the porch swing
when the news of my Father’s death
came to us.
We gathered here as a family
to enjoy the wedding receptions of our sons,
and to celebrate
their high-school graduations.
We’ve entertained our friends at church picnics.
We celebrated birthday parties.
Friends of our grown children
have come to share an occasional Sunday afternoon
MEMORIES are many,
from our porch swing.
My Husband, Don…1930-2017
