In Memory

My Grandma, Beth Reynolds Blake
1916 - 2009

"Late Fragment"

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.

-Raymond Carver

Les, we were so sorry to hear about your family's loss. I hope that the sting of her being gone from this mortality can be swallowed up by the hope of the resurrection. She must have been an exceptional woman to have such great posterity.

Thanks so much Alicen. She lived a long, healthy, happy life. But we will miss her.
