    __ As a youngster, if I offered my opinion, Maw or Paw would quickly say "we don't need your two cents_!" Now, as I visit their distant grave site, I lovingly leave two pennies on their headstone; they know then, that I still offer my two cents. Margaret, I thank you… memories.

    Yes, a moving and well-written poem by Margaret. I remember preparing my father's clothes for donation. Blessings, Ellen
