Headed West

I am headed west Friday. Going to visit my dad & KC.

KC is my dads wife. From the day we met she has always been very accepting and supportive of me personally, my relationship with Harry, and the kids. She has also looked for ways to encourage my dad and I to get to know each other for which I will always be thankful.

Now it is my turn to pay it forward. Her mom passed away this week. My heart is breaking for her. How do you say goodbye to your mom? Forever.

Gramma K left behind a beautiful collection of poetry, a lifetime of memories, and beautiful family. Thanks for sharing her with us KC, we will be forever blessed.

Good bye my friend
You leave a space
an empty place
in my heart
and this is the end
of quiet talks with one who will understand

and smiles of approval for me as I am
you are part of the past
but until the last
I love you
echoes through time
I know your love is mine

My paternal grandmother, Lagene Kay Cheldelin, died this last Febuary... I only knew her when I was a child and had not seen her for about 10 years. I googled her name today and found your post. My grandmother also wrote poetry, though I have never read any. I am curious if there is a connection, please email me!
