Tony was our neighbor for 2 short years. He was a gentle, kind man. We enjoyed knowing you and having your as our neighbor. Cass met us at the fence when we arrived home from our trip to tell us that you were in the hospital. So sorry that we weren't able to see you again. We will remember you with fond memories.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.
My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.
They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.
Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.
But of all the treasures I have, it's the memories of you that are the most precious.
