Although life is a continuous series of personal happenings (some joyful, some sad) there are those experiences that stand out more than others, and therefore bear contemplation and perhaps recording. So it was that I felt pressed to pen a number of brief pamphlet-sized accounts respectfully titled: “Poems for Special Occasions,” “Seasons and Times,” “Love’s Many Moments” and “Love-Roses & Tributes,” a potpourri of memorable happenings along life’s journey.

See picture of my aunt May Sheppard, so blessed as to have lived to enjoy her 100th Birthday, April 11, 2019. Clearly, one who knows the many experiences and encounters of life.
