God Bless you Otto

Dedicated to Granny Smith and Otto
When I read "Granny Smith" on Sunday Scribblings and saw that her husband had died from a fall, I was deeply saddened.. I did not know him. I had only read Granny's blog a few times, but seeing this news seemed to affect me deeply. I felt saddened for her loss. I thought about the sorrow of losing a loved one. I know Otto would have enriched my life if I had ever known him. Granny, I send this poem to you with sadness in my heart. My heart is with you. May God bless Otto and may God be with you in your time of sorrow.
I think of you often and make no outward show, But what it means to lose you, no one will ever know You wished no one farewell, not even said good-bye, You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why. You are not forgotten nor will you ever be, As long as life and memories last, I will remember thee. To some you may be forgotten, to others a part of the past, But to me who loved you dearly, your memories will always last. Nothing can be more beautiful than the memories I have of you. To me, you were someone special, God must have thought so too! If tears could build a staircase and memories a lane, I would walk all the way to Heaven, and bring you back again. unknown

It is funny how we get to know people over the internet and we some how become attached......

Granny and the love she shared with Otto touched more lives than we will ever know. I am sad beyond words for her loss.

What a lovely tribute. I had posted my piece before I read of Granny's loss, so I returned to add a piece to my post. I've linked to two of her posts about Otto, including a beautiful poem, "The Old Lovers" you would like to read, I'm sure. Their love has been such an inspiration to many, many of us.

Granny Smith and her Otto have touched many lives and she'll continue to do so - she has much more to tell... This is a lovely poem and a wonderful way to offer solace and tribute!

what a sweet poem. i heard about this when i went thru my sun scrib rounds. i'm so sorry to hear it. i would likely cry if this were read at a funeral.
