My sister, Kendall Martin For Dede a poem by her sister Even in the harshest of times We have beauty and gratefulness After devastating fires We have a rebirth of life Sunshine after floods Even after freezing ice and snow We have sun shinning on the frost flowers We have the sound of Icicles dripping After a loved one passes, they stay in our hearts and we feel they are at peace and feel no pain or sickness My dear sister throughout her life protected me Taught me many things If did not understand, I knew of their importance So, I put them in a save place only to take Them out years later to examine them She loved us fiercely, was thoughtful and very smart, intuitive, so talented and so very brave how lucky we are to have animals love us always how lucky we are that love never dies love you always
