At a gathering old friends to greet

Our lives so busy we seldom meet


Now scattered across this land

It feels so good to once again shake their hand


To catch up on lives both good and bad

Times that were happy and some that were sad


Most had pictures of grandchildren to boast

To our departed friends we gave a toast


We joked with each other how the years had take its toll

At our wrinkles and bigger bellies we tried not to show


In the arena before us we once rode proud

Now we are old faces in the crowd


We share the love of horses and always will

And hope to gather again before we each pass over the hill

You paint the picture with your words. I am so happy that you got to see your friends at the horse show. I am concerned for your health Ron. Please call and gove me the hospital phone number where they moved you.
My prayers are with you.

Oh, how moving, and with touch of melancholy, Ron...
I love [deceased]father-in-law owned a thoroughbred years ago..

Recently, I went to my own first family reunion - since a massive stroke almost five years ago..

It was wonderful and my ability to laugh out loud was restored, which was so miraculous, it brought tears to my eyes ...and all those looking at me.

We, too, are missing quite a few, and it sure makes one aware, that WE ARE the first line of defense more buffer zones.

Sharing the threads of love that run through our family-lines is important..but knowing where our thread is headed, and to which spool we belong to, is everything!

Glad you are in my Family, Ron!
Bless you, Rhonda
