#sol21 March 22 Not Just a Statistic


A friend,
Kind, in word and deed,
Generous, in nature and being,
So many shared memories,
Adventures, birthdays, school,
In recent years, 
We gathered rarely,
Yet, our stories were 
Intertwined by our children
Life choices.

A wife, mother, grandmother,
An aunt, cousin, friend.
An immeasurable loss,

Not just a statistic,
In the tally of losses.
Each one, someone's

"Each one, someone's Noreen." Perfect! This was a beautiful tribute to a wonderful life. It is so sad the number of people we have lost and with so many not even willing to acknowledge the significance. I am sorry for you loss. Not a statistic, but a person you will surely miss.
