I wrote this little poem for you,
    I figured you wouldn't mind.
    We sure did share some wonderful
    hours together on the ol' email line...

    We must've burned gallons of midnight
    oil, sharing all our laughs and our woes.
    You always fretting over Angel....
    and me coughing up my toes. LOL

    Your worries are all behind you now,
    and I'm left to face mine without you..
    Whatever will I do at 2:00 a.m.
    when you're not there to turn too.

    We didn't even get to say goodbye....
    Oh! Why ever did you go??
    I never even got the chance to
    hear your sweet voice say ....Hello!!

    You were a true Soxer Mary,
    in every possible way!!
    You inspired us all with your beautiful sox,
    and your sweet, cheerful notes each day!!

    You took the time to share in our lives,
    to become a big part of our group...
    We'll fill this void you've left in our hearts
    with those Special Memories of you!!

    I see you resting on a soft fluffy cloud,
    piled high with the finest of yarn...
    Knitting your sox to your heart's content
    and sending your sweet love down...

    Please save me a place dear Mary,
    right next to you there on that cloud.
    Cuz someday I know I'll join you my friend,
    we'll have no worries, no frowns.

    We'll knit sox together the live long days....
    and sing happy songs thru the nights.
    And the Angels will come round
    and beg for our sox....
    and we'll outfit them all just right!!

    You Bet We Will!!

    Dedicated on this 17th day of July, 2000--
    to my dear friend Mary with all my Love!!

    ~ In Loving Memory ~
    Of Our Dear Soxer Sister

    Dear Mary,
    All of our hearts ache at our loss of you on this earth. We know that you are in a better place, but you will be sorely missed.

    You were our true friend entertaining us with stories of your life and your family. We bid you farewell but you will stay in our hearts forever.

    Every sock that we knit will be worn with memories of our wonderful "Soxer" Mary,
    All of my love,

      I give you this one thought to keep-
      I am with you still- I do not sleep.
      I am a thousand winds that blow,
      I am the diamond glints on snow,
      I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
      I am the gentle autumn rain.
      When you awaken in the morning's hush,
      I am the swift, uplifting rush
      of quiet birds circled in flight.
      I am the soft stars that shine at night.
      Do not think of me as gone-
      I am with you still-in each new dawn.
      -Native American Prayer
      Love, Jennie C.
