IN MEMORY OF Jennie R. Le Fevre
TRIBUTE TO JENNIE
Jennie - I learned today you'd left us.
You left a big space down here, Jennie,
Big shoes to fill...impossible job, I think.
You are home! You are with our friends,
Our family. Those who didn't make it.
Those whose lives were taken by Agent Orange.
Those who were some of your 'Dear Ones'.
We never met in real time, Jennie,
But I knew you well. I knew your heart.
There was never a vet you turned down
Who needed your help. I'd write,
"Jennie, you have time for one more?"
You'd answer, "Send them on."
I always knew what your answer would be.
We won't forget you, Jennie,
What you stood for, what you have done,
Your quilts, your work, your tireless efforts.
The spirit with which you fought those in power,
The humor that was present whenever you wrote.
Thank you, Jennie, for being a part of our life.
We will watch for your star, too.
With love and deep respect,
