|They have experienced sadness through failure
joy through success
and, at times, both.
They have been pillars of support
and pillows to cry on.
They have watched us through birth
and on to where the cycle repeated itself.
They have known life through the birth of
the end of life
They have witnessed our reconciliation
to our mates
to our children
They have been there to help us through the
the times of loneliness
the fear caused by separation
and the soul-deep pain of divorce
They have instilled in us the respect for
When discipline was needed or warranted
they gave it without restraint but it was done
out of love
They taught us to stand on our own
but when we needed advice
they were there
They loved us all even when we didn't believe it
so when we remember them let it be with love.
