This poem is dedicated to my Grandpa who died Oct 7,2010 *Stars* Did you ever look up into the night sky and see the bright stars twinkling?
Those bright stars twinkling are loved ones who are lost and they are waving to you with their twinkles saying, "hello" or "Goodbye". And you wave back to them with their picture in your heart. And you say that you'll love them forever and always. Then you leave, with your heart filled.

I keep thinking back to the day Don went to bring Sue & Matthew home from the hospital and how frustrated he was by doing the girls' hair. It was the only time I knew him to be at a loss for how to do something. Fortunately I managed to get the hair done.
Sue, you're in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
Love, Jean & George

This was your temorary home it's not where you belong just a stop on the way to where you are going.....and I am so blessed that while you were here you were my father and my children's grandfather. Not a day will pass that we don't think of you or miss you. I know you are home now and we will see you again one day with your arms open waiting for us all.
Sending so much love and hugs to you,

sister Virginia--- that's Pat Gale. I fondly remember Donald and our time at St. Augustine. My wife and I went to mass this morning for Donald and said a rosary for him.
