There is some sad news...
Granpa Lou lost his mother on
Halloween, while he and Maisie
were having a grand time.
Bertha was a grand old girl of
Ninety-Three...And she met both
of her great grandchildren. She
spent her declining years in a
nursing home But even with a
dimming memory, Bert practically
ran the place. G bless her on her
beauteous journey. Heaven.
My sister-in-law, Cat, had the
ignominious obligation on Thursday
of putting down the Bassett Hound.
If i had to love a devoted canine,
Boo=Boo was my girlfriend. At
five & a half years with troubled
bones, she was a dog among dogs.
NOW, Bertha has a companion in
the self=same Heaven where Love,
Devotion and Virtue are rewarded.
[would that i did not have to wait
sixty years 2 go there.] Woof!

Who will console me?
Who will deliver me from this brief
darkness AND patch my wounds?
Who shall set a bright sun in the
high place above Falluja & Baghdad?
How many Names must we invoke
during this time of trial? Answer me,
oh indifferent Sky!
* * *
Wait! It is my name which calls for
Peace & consoles the afflicted.
All the burning prayers rise through me.
Imagine the beginning there^
Greater Wisdom may accrue...
To Perfect sympathy i submit.
And, Heaven will come
