Summer Vacation

Our yearly tradition

A summer family vacation

The distance between us reduced

We share games with laughter induced

The BBQ fills our bellies

While the memories fill our hearts

The desert heats don’t stifle our fun:

Games, the pool, the laughter can’t be outdone

Yet our bittersweet departures must end our time together

Until next summer vacation.


Fred, my brother

Cherished never to be forgotten.

Don’t worry, the impression on our hearts will not fade.

Love nourishes all our memories.

A flourishing free spirit,

A persistent innovator of art and enterprises.

Fred, our brother, is eternal.
