" K a t e "

pring is near
the flowers will be blooming
I can still see you going through the yard
smelling all the daffodils

And how I long for the laughter at the pond
on that first day of warmth
you and your brother floating on the tubes giggling
picking up frogs to give them a name and a ride on your tube

The laughter oh how I miss it
I listen to the pond now no more laughter
just the sounds of frogs in the evening
and the quiet splashes of your brother

. . . . . miss you Kate

This beautiful poem presents the "Torn Heart
of a Mother" who lost her 13 year old daughter. Kate
struck down needlessly by a careless motorist
on June 18, 1995, in Rochester, Vermont. It also speaks
of the emotion LEO's go through who have to investigate
scenes like this and make notifications of the passing.
