To John
Rise up on your beautiful new wings and fly with the birds in the warm golden sun. Feel the fragrant breeze on your face like never before. You are free! One with nature and the universe, without the hardship and pain of the world. You will remain in our hearts with the happiness that knowing you has given us. Shine like the stars. Sing into the wind and fly. SHELLY OTTENS
