Love it! I used to own a horse and I love these kinds of stories, even though I'm a 'big kid' now.

What Are Wakes For, Anyway? (Article) - 10/2/2006 8:04:47 PM
Your article was interesting and gave a different perspective on wakes . The expierence is different for each of us, and people handle death differently. It must have been hard to lose your parents so close together. I believe a person passes from their earthly life in to a heavenly one, which is much better than the one we were living.... Great write.....M
What Are Wakes For, Anyway? (Article) - 9/2/2004 3:15:39 PM
I'm a dialysis patient, so I go to several wakes a year. The families are always surprised to see a patient there-- I'm always the only one who shows up from our dialysis unit. I think the other patients just get emotionally overloaded from the frequent deaths and feel they'll be too upset if they go to the wakes, but I've found it helps to talk to the relatives and see the photographs so you get a better sense of who the person was before he/she became a dialysis patient.
I'm glad you were able to express your feelings with this article... it will help people who wonder if they should have a wake. Some of the famailes of deceased dialysis patients made their funerals private, which I thought was kind of rude-- it was like saying, "To hell with you guys-- the family is all that matters!" I would have liked to ask, "Well, where were you when your loved one was sitting all alone at dialysis with no visitors? WE were there to give support, and now we aren't even 'allowed' to say goodbye."

I love the brevity, the richness conveyed by the quick cadence of your poem...it seemed to convey a passionate love and deep abiding friendship very well. Hope you write A LOT of poetry, because I think you're really GOOD AT IT!

Sounds like you've had your hands full raising healthy, normal kids.

I like this poem because it expresses the love between two people so well, especially an old goat like me and my lovely wife, Jennie--this December will be our 47th year together.
God, I hope she doesn't go first . . .

Something I must share that was shared with me not so long ago Sis Anita: "Stop telling yourself what you cannot do, and make yourself go to the place you long to be. . . and that place is not among your dream stealers." Be in the place where you choose, and you will find a way to get there. You must post your 100th poem on Authors Den, then celebrate, poem by poem. Enjoy your journey!
blessin's, 2 U Sister Anita. . .
