Found August 20, 1988

Written after Uncle John Died


in death there came




and laughter


a perfect meeting

between faith and life

life and death

and humour


a perfect wish

with perfect care

so much was received


thank you for your acceptance

of my tears

my love of friends

and my need to laugh


To the Belleville Young Adults,

and William (who though a guest,

signed his name as well).
