Mr. Rockwell

Captured the ultimate

Family Thanksgiving.

Our family.

With you.

One year ago today

My cell rang.

I held my breath,

Fearing yours had ceased.

It had.

No longer free from want,

We achingly yearn

For your smile,

Your laugh,

Your presence.

Thanksgiving Day

Your beautiful daughters

Will light your funeral candle.

Our centerpiece,

Your light.

Thankful loss is not eternal,

Marie Elena
