It's All about Me
This is Me summed up in verse. When the time comes, hopefully not too soon, it will come in useful.
She loved the animals, the horses best
She also felt a love for all the rest.
She watched the birds
She wrote in words
She painted in oils
She collected earth's spoils.
She gardened and mowed
Her children she spoiled
Her machines she oiled.
She fed all her friends
She tied up loose ends
She knitted and sewed
She carded and spun.
She loved every one
She liked to play chess
She lived in a mess.
Computers her playthings
Her car full of dings,
She traveled the earth with joy and with mirth.
Wondrous places were her home.
She planned to write a mighty tome.
Ponds and fishes were her delight.
She watched the stars most every night.
Her love for family was most strong.
She helped them all to get along.
Wonderful Wales was her home
It gave her strength and let her roam.
Farms and fields were her domain
Whether the weather was sunny or rain.
Lots of Children came to play.
they all said we will miss our Raye.

This Obituary was written as an exercise in our writing class, Lifescapes at our Incline Village Library. I am sure it will come in useful one day! Well 3 years on I'm still around and nothing has changed except the addition of a beautiful Granddaughter now three years old. Even more reason to hang around!
well it's 2013 and I'm enjoying retirement in three continents. Currently I'm ducking the cold Sierra winter for Summer in NZ . I feel I have been so lucky to enjoy this privileged life style.
