I Will LiveSTRONG

My dear Vic ~ though I have just said goodbye,
I know that many, many others
have just greeted you with a warm hello. 
In honor of you, I will LiveSTRONG.
Ann

We honor and support and pray for all who
are fighting against cancer.

A special posting ~ Vic enjoyed reading poetry, and
dabbled with writing poetry.  Here, what he last wrote for me ...
