May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.
Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

    Ahhh… George. It seems you have a blog, too. Believe it or not, I had a Denver blogger friend of mine send me the link here. It was good seeing you this weekend. I’m sure we all wish it were under better circumstances.

    Hey, Howard

    Yes, it was an uncomfortable circumstance. The death of a friend–although, as I said, we hardly knew him–cuts deep.

    I thought the old Irish blessing pretty much expressed my thoughts/feelings. I’m sure the first Piney Lake assemblage will provide a campfire iteration of our sense of loss for Richard.

    Piney Lake will be a interesting experience. And, yes, I’m going. The boyfriend is insisting on going camping which he loves.

    The Irish blessing is very beautiful. I’ll have to tell Clayton that you posted it if you didn’t already. I was really nervous that he wouldn’t like the tribute I wrote, but we caught him quoting it to people on the phone, so I think he liked it. 🙂
