Matt and Kristin, June 1987

(Twenty Years On)

Happiness threaded

With sorrow along the way

As it is, this we know

Time led to change

Change sprouted growth

And growth….

Growth agreed to let go

But here’s the wind;

The stinging rain

The cold; the low blows

The remembered pain

And other people’s grief

Sometimes brings it back again

In Loving Memory of

Matthew Jerome Holmbeck

April 23, 1967 - August 3, 1988

Beloved Son, Brother, Friend

Love, Joy, Fun and Sun

Hugs, Smiles and Happiness

"We'd Rather Be Sailing"

Ah, the years have come and gone

Growing up, and out

Circling back around

Coming home, this place, after 20 years

New life abounds

Old roots still strong

Trees grown tall

Sorrow sown

Some blown to the wind

Some some still unowned

The beauty brings tears

And this beautiful life, our lives


With the gift of his years

---Kristin 21-Apr-08---
