I saw your mother as a home health nurse for years. I was sad to learn of her passing. Miss Evelyn was a wonderful person. She was very loving and very caring. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I know she will be greatly missed. And, to the family, take comfort in the great care that you provided for her. Miss Evelyn had a very caring family also.

Eyes Fixed To The Skies

God’s calling for you in his home

I want you to know, you didn’t leave us alone.

The words that you left behind will carry us on,

And by no surprise, the tears crept from my eyes

Drawn out by the memories my mind supplied.

And though I feel like my heart will burst,

and these feelings will turn to rust,

And though this time is awfully rough,

And I know this won’t count for much,

But part of us is made from your blood

And for me, that is more than enough.

And when each blue sky greets me,

I will be reminded of your eyes, so lovely,

And with each breath of spring’s fresh air

I will be reminded of your curls of blond hair

And when the sun beams down to warm my skin

I will be reminded of the hugs you wrapped me in

And when every winter drops it’s gentle snow

I will be reminded of your sweet, soft voice and know

That in every thing of beauty, I will find another part of you

And that will keep my eyes fixed to the skies, smiling at you .

-David Ray Conner Jr. 4/1/10
