Funeral Poem for Family

This was written after a beloved uncle had passed. I sometimes get uncomfortable expressing my emotions with words. When things touch me deeply and I need to express my emotions, I write. Sometimes it comes out well and people close to me receive it as it is intended. This was used as a memorial on our family reunion booklet.

Though you're not gone.
You still remain,
in the minds, hearts, and lives you've
