Winter Months of Life

In the winter months of life,
there comes a balance between hanging on and letting go.
Should we stay or should we go?
Do we get to choose?
What do we have to lose?

 My Marty’s 92-year old Aunt lost the second love of her life this week.  Her near 93-year old fiance.

Rest in Peace dear Tilford.  Thanks for loving Aunt Francie.  Thanks for bringing her such joy in the winter years of her life.   You will be missed.  You were a good man.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about the loss of Marty’s Aunt’s fiance. They look like such a sweet couple. I would like to express same sentiments as ramblingsfromamum, RIP Tilford! I hope that Marty’s aunt is taking it okay. You all are in my heart and prayers. (I love the picture of the little bird).

  2. Very sorry to hear it, for all of you who knew him. You can look at his picture and get a sense of the kindness. Jodi, yours is a gift. It truly is. Love the photo of the bird and the poem…really so poignant and moving. Hugs to you and your family, and Francie.
