Letter: A tribute to Willard
For one brief moment, I could still see the twinkle in your eyes
Through your pain and suffering, it was still there, Willie Boy
We shared sacred stories, held forever in safekeeping
Like water from a fireman’s hose, laughter splattered everywhere
You were the best storyteller, my friend.
For one brief moment, we celebrated life
Returning to those days of joy and adventure
Becoming like the children we taught and loved
Neither of us knowing we were both saying goodbye
Thank you for taking me there, if only for a moment
We will all love and will miss you, Willard
