“Bits ‘n Pieces of Me: Memoirs to retain identity in the face of growing dementia” — unpublished pg 2c-04: 1982 January:
Birth of Daughter.
Our Christmas gift arrived today
it wasn’t very early.
A baby girl beside me lay
her dark hair soft and curly.
A baby is a special thing;
a gift from G0d above,
and how she makes us want to sing
and show to her our love.
Now comes the problem of a name.
We have it all picked out.
Charleen Michelle she then became;
a name we know about.
Michelle; that is my sister’s name,
and I would like to see
Charleen grow to be much the same
and yet the strength with which to stand
and keep her standards high;
but not afraid to lend a hand.
When needed, she will try.
That’s looking far ahead, I know,
to grow up like my sis.
But now it’s just today, and so
I’m satisfied with this.
