Remember John

Shared by Cathy Deeths on January 15, 2020
I only had a short time with John while I was selling his and Melanie’s home in Petaluma. I will never forget his friendly smile and the wonderful relationship I saw shared between the two of them. Most of all I remember is beautiful garden. He inspired me, (and I don’t think he knew that) to put life into my yard. I have been guided by what I saw he did ever since. I will think of you every-time I work in my yard now. Thank you John and may you Rest In Peace

Barefoot

Spiritual and refreshing walks on the beach
John wearing no shoes to feel the sand
George huffing and puffing
Jerry bouncing up and down childlike
The talk is soft, respectful, and measured
How can anyone forget the feeling
Happy to have been in your life
Sad we can not do it again
Rest in Peace John

Gone Too Soon by Michael Jackson

Like a comet
Blazing 'cross the evening sky
Gone too soon

Like a rainbow
Fading in the twinkling of an eye
Gone too soon

Shiny and sparkly and splendidly bright
Here one day
Gone one night

Like the loss of sunlight
On a cloudy afternoon
Gone too soon

Like a castle
Built upon a sandy beach
Gone too soon

Like a perfect flower
That is just beyond your reach
Gone too soon

Born to amuse, inspire, to delight
Here one day
Gone one night

Like a sunset
Dying with the rising of the moon
Gone too soon.
