Title Myrtle Emma Larsen, Our Friend
Description This sweet poem, submitted by MarKay L Turner, with comments by Karen L. Jennings is representative of many in our area who answer to the honored name of Grandmother. MYRTLE EMMA LARSEN, OUR FRJEND MarKay Larsen Turner Non-Judged She was "our Nana" who opened her home and her heart to all 13 of us. We were more than wanted whether we came for an afternoon, a weekend, the summer or even longer. The cookie jar was always full. She always whistled while she ironed. We always heard, "Shut the door!" when we'd run in and out. She taught us all 'unconditional love" before there were words to describe it. She taught it to our parents first, then they taught us, as did we. May we remember her ways and teach them to her great-grandchildren as skillfully. You can only have one mother, patient, kind and true. No other friend in all the world will be the same to you. When other friends forsake you, to mother you will return. For all her loving kindness, she asked nothing in return. Sweet Jesus, take this message to our dear mother up above. Tell her how we miss her, and give her all our love. Your life was love and labor, your love for your family true. You did your best for all of us, we will always remember you. This poem is dedicated to "our Nana" by MarKay, her second grandchild. She watched her dad (Hial) and uncles and aunt respond to their mother widi a lifetime of love for their kids. What a legacy we each have to have known love in its purest sense. 101
