I was born in Jerome Idaho in 1940, the oldest of seven children. I have been married to an angel for 50 years. We have 4 children, 13 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. I have always enjoyed writing poetry. I wrote my first poem when I was eight years old for the prettiest girl in my class. It got a big smile so I was inspired to write more. I wrote “Broken Chain” at the passing of a family member, and “Teardrops” when we lost a grandchild. Over the years I have written, and copyrighted, over 300 poems on many different subjects, and for many occasions. Some are licensed and can be found on wall plaques, woven throws, cups, bookmarks, and even headstones. It is through the encouragement of family members, and many funeral directors, that this book has come about. The greatest happiness I find in my writing comes from the many messages I receive telling me of the comfort one my poems has given to someone who has lost a loved one. I hope my thoughts, put to rhyme, helps to remind us of the importance of God, family, friendship, country, love, compassion, and humor in our lives.
