To My Sister Mary

At her funeral Mass

It never ceases to amaze me how life marches right past whatever expectations we may have of it

“We always had warm hearts together”

Two weeks - seventy-one years & funeral drivers we know drive us home one more time

Patricia, Mom, Dad, await you Mary

No more work, play, sad, happy

Journey you made here will fortify you there

I recall you in the kitchen

On the phone

Dating

Proud to have you a senior when I but a freshmen

On the Radio, together, on Saturday mornings

I thank you for the journal you sent

The memories you had of me

Emotions here

Her there

Sad not to be present

But will join you soon

As will all your family

Forever yours brother Thomas Sylvan Hilber

P.S. I’ll bring the banjo

Back up those tall tales

Stories about people with crooked mouths

Who cooled but could not blew your candle out

BABY PATRICIA 

THE OLDEST AND YOUNGEST SISTERS

GONE TOO SOON
