Mrs. GCH


Today our darling Anne began
her journey beyond the stars—
This new adventure is solely hers
but the loss is solely ours.

Look up tonight, you’ll see her soar—
Sweet Molly by her side;
Glenn will smile and stroll nearby,
but Irish Anne will ride.

Her sterling wit, her sparkling eyes—
We’ve known them all too well;
their loss becomes much more profound
by the tolling of the bell.

The world is ever blander now
and harder still to smile—
The cleft impressed on all our lives
will hurt for quite a while.

Tally Ho, dear friend, hark to His horn;
green pastures for you abound—
Just don’t forget those left behind
and once in a while…look down.
