S is for the Island of Sunshine
The Island of Sunshine/ an island of sorrow/
sisters three/now sister alone.
Life’s changes/the universe calls
Two watch over one.
For Jennifer, known as “Jeff”,
the oldest of three/ has buried two younger sisters
one two years ago, one last week.
The island of Sunshine is near Deer Isle, Maine.
faithful servant to her Lord
little children learned from her
parents and grandparents from them
Joan touched so many lives
every day in her humble way.
It will take Joan’s village of people to carry on
learn to carry on her work and legacy.
I feel blessed for having known Joan
Many, myself included
found themselves a better person
in the presence a someone living
by their faith without question.
