This poem was written in memory of Vern as Mike held his hands the night before he left us.

A Hand That Cares
Hands are used for many things
We feel and touch with hands
We shake a hand as we greet
And help others with a helping hand
We hold the hands of a loved one
To show them that we care
We put our hands together
When we talk to the Lord in prayer.
Then you hold the hands of a loved one
As with him you begin to pray
And you feel the love within his touch
As he slowly passes away.
A Tribute to Vern, Rosie's Husband
