Red hats

Purple complements of lace or tool

Fancy ladies gathered with her


Grandma Jen, Momma D, Jenny, Mary Jane, Gigi, mother, wife, sister, vibrant soul

Singing Cell Mates

Where bingo replaced the bars

Melodies then echoing to audiences in

Rockers, walkers, wheelchairs


Always a project in progress

To fit small feet

Baby hands

My hands

Our heads for whips of winter wind.

Our favorite fiber; chains of your love


Your spirit will live on in all of the red hats decorated with purple bows, ribbon, flowers

Your soul will live in every note, melody, key

Your laugh will live in every ball of yarn in every color, size, shape


You will live on within Our memories, photos, voicemails


I love you.

  1. This was beautifully written. I could picture the red hats, all decorated up, looking elegant. Balls of wool remind me of my grandmother as well. She taught me to knit and crochet, spending evening upon evening curled up together watching tv and creating scarves, hats, stuffed animals, blankets, etc.
