Love and miss you bunches.

Erin Brant , Syracuse, UT, US Sep 20, 2021

Taylor, So sorry to hear about your mom.

May you find peace.


Only For a Short While

Oh, only for so short a while you

have loaned us to each other,

because we take form in your act of drawing us,

and we take life in your painting us,

and we breathe in your singing us.

But only for so short a while

have you loaned us to each other.

Because even a drawing cut in obsidian fades,

and the green feathers, the crown feathers,

of the Quetzal bird lose their color,

and even the sounds of the waterfall

die out in the dry season.

So, we too, because only for a short while

have you loaned us to each other.

We had the great pleasure of meeting Charlotte and getting to know her just over the very few past few months, but she had a way of engaging us like old friends. We send our deep love and prayers to the family. Thank you. May The Lord grant you all His peace. What a lovely, beautiful lady.
