thoughts for a brother-in-law

Hold on to what is good
even if it is a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe
even when it is a tree
that stands by itself.

Hold on to what you must do
even when it is a long way from here.

Hold on to life
even when it is easier letting go.

Hold on to my hand
even when I have gone away from you.

- Pueblo

Rest in Peace, Lyle.
A good man, a great husband and loving and kind father and grandfather.
