To Sloan December 9, 2009

We come together

 to hold him tight

and lay him down for the night.

He is my cousin I cannot lie,

but now it’s time to let him fly.

Forgive us all

the wrongs we have done

and then we will send him to the Son.

I love him much and I’ll never forget

when I called him that day

knowing what he would say,

“I’m proud of you Luque, no really I am,

Congrats on the jump.”

I felt like Peter Pan.

I knew he’d be proud of the thing I had done.

But now I am proud he’s with the Son!

Sloan Benthall Zirkle passed on December 9, 2009 and is lovingly remembered by his cousin Luque Benthall in this poem.  This blog is done in his memory and in honor of his first birthday in heaven on January 2, 2010.
