In Memory of Ron (Joann's partner)

lilosophieJune 20, 2012

The Ferrier died today

Practicing a dying art

Wielding the tools

Working the forge

Putting shoes on equines

A Sagittarius

Understanding horses,

Understanding fire

Straightforward, honest

Godspeed on your journey

My deepest sympathy to Joann and you. A long and valiant fight is over.

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint of snow,
I am sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone - I am still with you in each new dawn.

Dear Lilo and Joann,
I am so sorry for the pain you are going through right now and may the years of memories and love help soften it a little.

I will be thinking of you both and sending healing prayers your way.

Your tribute is beautiful---I had a copy of that taped to the inside of the door on my supply locker at nursery school for years---it helped me get through some pretty tough losses. It's comforting to read it again.

I'll light the candle in the garden tonight and hope it will help comfort you.

Love to you both.

I apologize---Anneliese posted the poem I mentioned---please forgive me for my blunder.

Lilo, your tribute was written with the same leaness as the picture of Ron, working at the forge.
Nothing to spare in his build---what is shown is what he needed to work at his craft.

Lean, hard muscles and probably some long scars on his calves.

(My brother used to be a ferrier)

Peace be with you.
KJ
