While the colors of the trees brightened the gloom of the day
It was a day of sadness on so many levels.
We said our final goodbyes to fiends of so many years.
More than that we parted with Husband's beloved mother.
Family and friends stood in a cold, damp wind
As Son gave a tribute to his quite, sweet Grandma.
His Gardner Grandma that saved ears of sweet corn for him
To have when he returned from college at Thanksgiving.
We wept this Wednesday.
