Esther Joan FAGERLID

Oct. 11, 1929 – Nov. 7, 2008

Joan gently left us November 7, 2008 to meet up with Carl, Jean and Chuck. Joan gave us so much love during her time with us she will live on in our hearts forever.

The Watcher

She always leaned to

watch for us,

Anxious if we were late,

In winter by the window,

In summer by the gate;

And though we mocked

her tenderly,

Who had such foolish care,

The long way home would

seem more safe,

Because she waited there.

Her thoughts were all

so full of us,

She never could forget!

And so I think that where she is

She must be watching yet,

Waiting ‘til we come

home to her,

Anxious if we are late~

Watching from Heaven’s window,

Leaning from Heaven’s gate.

~Margaret Widdemer
