Grace & Arbutus Bell in the apple tree

Losing our loved one you stood by my side. Giving me strength - your council my guide. As we’ve grown older and live far apart. For aways - forever engraved on my heart. Warm tender thoughts - freash morning dew. There is always something to remind me of you.

To my sister Grace

Who made my childhood a delight, My teen years enjoyable, And taught me the joy of living.
