This Lady in Blue
 Jerry Davis  12-19-00

She was a wonderful, warm, lady,
This lady in blue.

When this lady put on her blue sun hat and her blue dress with shoes to match she was a sight to see,
This lady in blue.

Monday nights she made her way to the Abilene Gem and Mineral Society club house.  She saw beauty in nature and its gem stone products, 
This lady in blue.

She was a friend to all she met,
This lady in blue.

She showed a sincere interest in projects others were working on,
This lady in blue.

Her smiles were warm and radiant even through the pain we knew she felt,
Cancer was trying to take her away from us,
This lady in blue.

 She lost her daughter from cancer a few years before and knew it was trying to take her too,
This lady in blue.

This lady entertained our club members at her home several times.  The last of these meetings we suspected she might not be with us much longer,
This lady in blue.

We saw her strength begin to wain as the depth of pain began to take more permanent residence of
This lady in blue.

She didnít want to leave us and we didnít want her to go, but soon God came and took her away,
This lady in blue.

When we see Blue Birds and blue gemstones we will remember the strength and magnificence of,
This lady in blue.

We loved her and we will miss her,
This lady in blue.
