Service Date: November 18, 2018

Amazing grace, how have you got such a pretty face? We float around from place to place Like two heavenly bodies I wanted to show you that I love you the most But clumsy and blue I just fumbled through And by your candor big and bright Framed by a halo yellow And the voice of the angel says Call me unto me my one In times when you strive If only in sight of a glowing light I want you to know That I am here There\'s a power we share I am still here Power we share

Friday, Nov 16. Mag has been gone for three weeks now. One daughter safe at home, one on the road, mercifully the Sun has returned. Wake up, Maggie, I think I got something to say to you.

Mag lit out one time- to Maine, where RJ's Air Force stint was during Korea, finding employment and living properly with a local couple. Happy Veteran's Day to all.

It was Thursday, the 25th, that Mag passed away- She was, as Don Schmeder said today, a lady. Illinois Avenue, where her people lived side by side in the 1800 block. Monroe School, Rock Junior High, East Side. For Dad, growing up nearby on Henrietta, it was St. Joseph and Central Catholic. Youngest in their families. Depression babies. Their older siblings got the Great Depression for their childhood, and World War II for a graduation present. A little younger and you got Korea. It seems to me that never wore off, regardless of how secure and comfortable they eventually became. So off to the Village we went, and eventually to Maryville. And at every moment from Illinois Avenue to Anderson Hospital some sixty years later, their love was wrapped around us, like the very fabric of our existence. I have no idea how it feels to be alone in this world. I never had to know.
