In honor of my grandfather-in-law passing last night, I’m resharing this poem of mine. I wrote this poem during my trip to Puerto Lindo, Panama, where my husband, his dad, and I all stayed on a boat for over a week with my grandparents-in-law. They knew of my love of poetry and enjoyed what I’d been writing. I was assigned to write a poem about my stay there during the week, and they had me read it out loud to them on the boat during our last evening there. With is passing, this poem has new meaning to me. He was a wonderful person and I’m going to miss him dearly.
