While I Write My Thankful List

Ed notices his friend’s
front door’s ajar
so he’ll check the cattle
then make a call

#1 Walked the dog today

Ed phones his friend
confirms they didn’t
leave the door open
and says, I’m going in

#2 My family came home
safely at 9:30pm

They hear Ed
on the phone asking,
“What are you doing here?”

#3 I have friends

Ed is murdered
January 23, 2016
at the age of 68

#4 I’ve had a happy life

{for our friend Ed who was suddenly taken from us}

  1. Certainly not “like” for what happened but in the craft of this considerate, respectful–and grateful–tribute. I’m sorry for the awful, tragic loss of your friend’s life.
