"Her entire poem radiates the joy I felt watching the power of that child's smile."

I have just read "Always connected" (July 3), and I had to sit down and put my thoughts into words. I was waiting for my daughter to call before retiring. She calls every night because I live alone. After sixty-five years, I am alone, but the thought, "God goes with you and stays with me" reminds me that I am not alone. When I think of my wife it is, "God is with you, He is also with me."
