    Dear Joannie, Brian & Dannika,

    Thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Here is a poem I would like to share:

    Gone too Soon Author Unknown:

    Like a comet
    Blazing across the evening sky
    Gone too soon

    Like a rainbow
    Fading in the twinkling of an eye
    Gone too soon

    Shiny and sparkly
    And splendidly bright
    Here one day
    Gone one night

    Like the loss of sunlight
    On a cloudy afternoon
    Gone too soon

    Like a castle
    Built upon a sandy beach
    Gone too soon

    Like a perfect flower
    That is just beyond your reach
    Gone too soon

    Born to amuse
    To inspire and delight
    Here one day
    Gone one night

    Like a sunset
    Dying with the rising of the moon
    Gone too soon
    Gone too soon
