Remembering Mary Therese

Tulips for Mary

No matter if decades pass since you’ve seen one another.

You shared something special and exciting a long time ago.

When you remember, they’re younger and laughing and you’re younger and laughing, too.  Life was good.

All those years I didn’t mail Christmas cards.

Wish I’d kept in better touch.  You hear the sad news.

These tulips are for Mary Therese who passed May 12th.

There’s a celebration of her life at Our Lady of the Pines in Black Forest, Colorado Friday morning, but I’m in Pittsburgh.

I want to tell her beloved husband, Joe, I’m sorry, I remember and I will keep them both in my heart.

Hers is a life to celebrate!

Mary Therese Bonnet

March 10, 1953 – May 12, 2016

  1. Time passes and things change; what matters is that you hold her dear in your heart. That is one measure of a life well-lived: when others feel our passing with tears of the news and joy in the memories.
