Randy Bane of Rolla, Kan., and his wife came and spoke to the Dementia Support Group one time. He is such a kind gentleman.

Today he came into the Main Street Guymon office and brought a poem he wanted to share with Dorothy Countryman. I think there are more people who should read it.

Future
Looking each day
For the sun to shine.
But it seems that some 24 hours
Are not so fine.
At times I wear my feelings
As the old saying goes, “Right on the cuff”.
Making these days,
In plain speaking, somewhat rough.
Looking for the positives,
The many blessings that I do hold –
Would make life happier.
I should try not to fold.
But I miss those who are gone.
Some taken in an untimely way.
At times I yearn for the past so much,
It paints my world gray.
Always will miss them
With every beat of my heart.
But I must look to the future
Making each and every day a new start.
Thinking briefly about what might have been,
However, letting love show in many a situation,
Knowing that we are or were
Part of His great creation.
I will trust in God,
Having Him walk beside me as I carry my difficult load.
Knowing that He is my Savior,
Traveling with me every step of the road.
I cannot put memories behind;
Each is precious on its own.
But I will show that my love for God and others
Has continually grown.
Looking to the future –
Caring about what lies ahead,
Forever thankful that memory is such an important part of my life.
Enough has been said.

Wishing you a holiday season with good memories.

See you on the bricks!
