Miss You

Family reunion yesterday

The numbers are dwindling every year.

Where’s so and so?

And why didn’t he or she make it?

Some are too old and feeble to join us.

Miss you

  1. I know that feeling well. I watched my grandmother out live most of her friends. It was very hard for her.

    • It’s very hard for those older ones to watch their loved ones go. My 85 year old mother’s best friend died a couple of years ago. And one by one many others are following.

      Thanks for your comment today, Alice.

  8. You’re so right–the losses in a small family must feel the sting even harder.
