My parents both have passed on,
But leave lots to follow there way.
9 children, 6 boys and 3 girls and families.
The oldest is 64 and the youngest 47.

We have tried family reunions,
But never seem to all show up.
Funerals of our parents worked.
Seems to take sad events for us.

This is my family so far.
October I will be a Grandmother.
Things have changed in both families.
As all pulled together when I almost died.
Brothers and sisters joined together,
Grudges were forgiven, allowing communication.
The youngest of the family almost gone.
A lot of contemplation of family for all.
Now we all learned this lesson,
From funerals to scares.
Families remember time is short.
Is ok to fight, but you still love.
