Goodbye for now to our Mom...

We say goodbye, for now, to Paul's Mom

Eleanor Gray Crowell

15 August 2015

We'll not soon forget this date in history - it is Paul's 70th birthday today, as well.

That's all I have. Just thinking about the family today, trying to bring up all the good times... the bad times can just stay buried... no need for them now.

Young Eleanor

Paul & His Folks 1985

On our wedding day - the best day of my life, in his folks' home.

Notice who gets most of the sofa! Didn't bother Eleanor! She was a trooper.

We gave them a magnolia tree for their new house in Maine.

Paul's folks were like lovebirds for their entire long marriage. Each was 93 when they passed on to the next phase of Life.

We'll meet up again... sometime... somewhere... somehow... I know that much.


(and Happy Birthday to my handsome husband Paul - who has made the last 30 years of my life worth living!)

Bex & Co.

I think I could turn and live awhile with the animals...
They are so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied... not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth.

~ [Walt Whitman, from "Leaves of Grass, No. 32"] ~
