A women's spirit lives on. The photo is of a dear friend who tragically died in a car crash.


Mother to daughter,
Daughter to child,
Essence flows.

Inheritance,
The physical,
Similar clothes. 

Genetic makeup
May skip a beat,
But it shows. 

Generations of strength,
Sharing, women—
Young and old. 

Hearts of courage,
Wisdom unsuppressed,
Spirit so bold.

 Child to daughter,
Daughter to mother,
Essence grows.
