The Gifts
By Alyson Roberts (Bradshaw)


I know you cannot see me

But we are not apart

I’ve left behind these gifts for you

To keep within your heart


I hope you hear my music play

Long beyond my years

I’ve left behind my song for you

To replace your fears


I hope you see the way my eyes

would twinkle when you came

I would laugh and kiss your cheeks

Then kiss them once again


I hope you fill your kitchen

With the food I made for you

Cookies, pickles, kuchen

And little rufies too


I hope you tell my stories

The funny sweet and strange

Of UFOs, life at the ranch

And dances at the grange


I hope you feel the love I have

I hope that you all knew

You are all my kids and brought me joy

I was so proud of you


You see, I have not gone away my dears

So please don’t cry for me

Instead please sing the beautiful song

Of my memory

On behalf of the Arlon and Leta Cook family, I wish to express my condolences to your family. I have fond memories of Delbert and Delores stopping to visit our family in Spokane with their children. I can still see, in my mind’s eye, the station wagon they drove. I was probably a young teenager at the time. Michael, Marcia, Jeff and I wish your family peace, comfort and precious memories. Love to All.
